A24 is practically the closest thing Hollywood has to Godzilla right now, with the Indie company absolutely destroying any competition it has in its line of sight. The Oscars? Yeah, A24 will just take home all the major ones like it was no big deal.

Anyway, A24 is on top of the world right now, meaning that it has assembled a stellar cast of acting veterans and young up-and-comers for Y2K, a disaster comedy film that will be directed by Saturday Night Live alum Kyle Mooney.

According to Deadline, Jaeden Martell (It), Rachel Zegler (West Side Story), and Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2) lead a stacked ensemble that also includes Lachlan Watson (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Mason Gooding (Scream VI), 5x Billboard Music Award-winner The Kid Laroi, Tim Heidecker (Us), Eduardo Franco (Stranger Things), Miles Robbins (Blockers), Alicia Silverstone (Clueless), Fred Hechinger (Fear Street Trilogy), and Daniel Zolghadri (Funny Pages). Now that’s a lot of talent from a lot of popular shows and movies. Will it be enough to draw audiences though, that is the question.

Y2K was scripted by Evan Winter and is set on New Year’s Eve 1999, following two high school nobodies (Martell, Dennison) as they 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.

A24 will finance the pic and handle its worldwide release. Wētā Workshop will oversee the film’s design and practical effects. No release date has been announced for Y2K at this time. We’ll keep you posted.

What do you think about the cast and plot for Y2K? Do you think this could be another successful film for A24?
