All For Show: Justice Smith & Brigette Lundy-Paine Topline Schoenbrun’s “I Saw the TV Glow”

When we reported that Jane Schoenbrun had begun production on her sophomore feature, we had no clue what kind of a zesty cast would be in store — in a nutshell, we’ve got a youthful mixture of musicians and young thesps in a sophomore film that will be a centrepiece among the A24 items to be launched next year.  The Hollywood Reporter reports that Justice Smith and Brigette Lundy-Paine lead an ensemble of folks popping in and out of the television set with Phoebe Bridgers, Fred Durst, Lindsey Jordan, the band King Woman, Helena Howard, Danielle Deadwyler, Amber Benson, Ian Foreman, Michael Maronna, Conner O’Malley, Emma Portner and Danny Tamberelli all onboard.

This follows two teenage outcasts, played by Smith and Lundy-Paine, who bond over their shared love of a scary television show, but the boundary between TV and reality begins to blur after it is mysteriously canceled. Filming just concluded and while a Sundance showcase is entirely feasible, the A24 folks do have a slew of other project they’ll want to get out.
