Terms of Endearment: Eric Wareheim to Direct Michael Cera in A24s ‘Jonty’

Funny folks Eric Wareheim and Michael Cera are joining forces with Four Lions scribes Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain for Jonty – an A24 project set to being lensing in April 2019 in New York. The Production Weekly blurb went unnoticed late last week. Wareheim will direct.

Gist: This is about a coddled kid who joins forces with an old friend to produce a terrible Broadway play.

Worth Noting: Writing pair Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain have worked on several TV projects – Peep Show and Fresh Meat just to name a pair.

Do We Care?: Wareheim co-directed Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie with Tim Heidecker, but Jonty will be his feature debut.
