Michael Cera’s future indie hit Paper Heart

source: hollywoodreporter.com

Everyone’s favourite awkward teenage heartthrob Michael Cera is set to star alongside girlfriend Charlyne Yi in Paper Heart.

The semi-secret project (it doesn’t even have an IMDB page yet) is supposedly part-scripted comedy and part-documentary based around the real life relationship between Cera and Yi.

According to an article in The Hollywood Reporter, festival programmers believe Paper Heart is THE film to have on their line-up. It is expected to debut at next years Sundance Film Festival.

Producers have been trying to keep advance word on the project limited, especially after a number of recent festival flicks crumbled under the weight of stratospheric expectations.

The film will be Nicholas Jasenovec’s (who helmed this hilarious short-film starring Bill Hader) feature directorial debut.

Although Cera has rocketed to stardom thanks to leading roles in Juno and Superbad, he will always be George Michael to me.

Charlyne Yi (12 years Cera’s senior) had a small role in Knocked Up as Martin’s stoner girlfriend Jodi. Key quote: “You must be angry at the baby whenever it steals your food, huh. Ohh that’s mine, not yours. But, you know, because you’re family you gotta share.”

The project sounds very similar to Cera’s brilliant internet show Clark and Michael, in which he played an emotionally unstable version of himself alongside Sex Drive‘s Clark Duke.

It will be awhile before we get to enjoy Paper Heart in Australia. Those looking for their Michael Cera fix can look forward to Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist on March 12.
