When desired, we all want to watch a good high school comedy, and indie production company A24 wants to add their own with a twist into the market! They’ll be producing the upcoming disaster comedy Y2K, which is currently in production.

While this is not a remake of the 1999 made-for-television thriller starring Ken Olin, we’re expecting this movie to take viewers back in time to a familiar phase in life for some and an undiscovered era for others. This film is an original story crafted by former SNL cast member Kyle Mooney and Evan Winter. In addition to co-writing the script, Mooney will also be directing this feature.

It seems that the movie will offer up genre-bending moments with a combination of coming-of-age, horror, and comedy elements. Y2K is being produced by actor Jonah Hill, Winter, Matt Dines, Ali Goodwin and Hulu’s The Bear creator Christopher Storer.

Since we gave you a taste of the creative team for Y2K, we know you want to know more about the film’s release, its full cast, and other important details. Read on to find out!
