2024 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Kyle Mooney’s Y2K

2024 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Kyle Mooney’s Y2K

With so many A24 items looking for 2024 positioning, we wouldn’t be surprised if Kyle Mooney‘s feature debut waits for the next train to pass but we kinda like what a Park City premiere might do for the film. Jaeden Martell, Rachel Zegler, Julian Dennison, Lachlan Watson, Mason Gooding, The Kid Laroi, Tim Heidecker, Eduardo Franco, Miles Robbins, Alicia Silverstone, Fred Hechinger and Daniel Zolghadri populate what is bring coined as a disaster comedy. Production on Y2K would have taken place in New Jersey around the month of April. Mooney needs no introduction to most because of his work with SNL, but it’s worth mentioning that the actor, comedian, writer, producer was one of the co-writers on Dave McCary’s Brigsby Bear (2017) – a Sundance and Cannes selection. Again chances are slim seeing the deluge of A24 films that are ready.

Gist: Written by Evan Winter, and set on New Year’s Eve 1999, two high school nobodies (Martell, Dennison) decide to crash the last big party before the new millennium. When the clock strikes midnight, the night gets more insane than they ever could have imagined.

Production Co./Producers: American Light & Fixture’s Chris Storer, Strong Baby’s Matt Dines, Ali Goodwin and Jonah Hill.

Prediction: U.S. Dramatic Competition.

U.S. Distributor: A24.
