Jonah Hill to direct zombie-vampire-alien flick

Jonah Hill is set to make his directorial debut on the Oren Uziel-scripted horror comedy The Kitchen Sink. According to Deadline, the Sony picture will follow “the unlikely alliance between a high school-aged vampire, zombie and human as they try to save their town from invading aliens.”

Named ‘The Kitchen Sink’ for its inclusion of many, many zany elements, Uziel’s screenplay landed on the 2010 Black List, a collection of the best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood.

This news could be somewhat, well, surprising if you still picture Hill as Michael Cera‘s Superbad sidekick (or, for purists, as the hotdog-suit wearing geek from Accepted). However, the young actor/screenwriter/now-director is maturing a lot faster than a lot of his contemporaries.

Not only is he appearing alongside Brad Pitt and Philip Seymour Hoffman in the Bennett Miller drama Moneyball, he also co-wrote the film adaptation of 21 Jump Street (in which he stars in the lead).

Discuss: But can he helm what we assume will be a decently-budgeted action action film?
