A24 announces Y2K from actor/comedian/writer and former Saturday Night Live cast member Kyle Mooney and Evan Winter. Mooney will direct and Winter will produce, from a screenplay they wrote. It’s set to focus on high schoolers played by West Side Story’s Rachel Zegler and It’s Jaeden Martell on the night of the titular event attending “the last big party of the millenium.”
Zegler and Martell are supported by an all-star cast including Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2), Lachlan Watson (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Mason Gooding (Scream), Tim Heidecker (Us), Eduardo Franco (Stranger Things), Miles Robbins (Blockers), Alicia Silverstone (The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Clueless), Fred Hechinger (Fear Street), and Daniel Zolghadri (Funny Pages). Australian Rapper The Kid Laroi will make his acting debut.
Y2k will be Mooney’s big screen directorial debut and his second time writing for a feature film after 2017’s Brigsby Bear.
A24 will produce alongside Matt Dines, Ali Goodwin and Jonah Hill (Mid90s) of Strong Baby and Chris Storer (The Bear) of American Light & Fixture. Wētā Workshop will handle design and practical effects. A24 will also distribute globally.
