A24 is developing a new end of the world cyber-comedy that will focus on the Y2K bug. If you are not aware of the Y2K bug scare, it was thought that when we hit the year 2000 all of the computers would glitch and rest back to 1900 which would cause a catastrophic amount of data loss.
The film description is as follows, When a group of nerdy high schoolers attempts to go to the cool kids’ New Year’s Eve party, the literal Y2K bug kicks in, and computers start running amok and go on a deadly killing spree. These unlikely kids go on an epic odyssey to stop the violent computers and save their city.
We have learned that Rachel Zegler is in talks to join what is already a stacked cast. Zegler is staying busy having starred in West Side Story and landing a role in Shazam! Fury Of The Gods, the actress is also set to lead the Hunger Games prequel, The Ballad Of Songbirds And Snakes.
Zegler’s reps could not be reached for comment.
Earlier this month Illuminerdi reported that Jaeden Martell, Lachlan Watson, Julian Dennison, Alicia Silverstone, Fred Durst, The Kid LAROI, MelanieLynskey, Fred Hechinger, Sebastian Chacon and Miles Robbins have joined the film.
The film is directed and written by Kyle Mooney and Evan Winter. Jonah Hill is set to produce the film.
The Illuminerdi reported filming was ongoing already but our source says filming does not begin until March 30 and will run until April 27 in Montclair, NJ.
There is currently no release date yet for Y2K.
