“I actually play guitar now! I have since just started learning a few months ago but I love it […] Like everything in my life, it was for a film. There was a character I had to play in a movie… which has been postponed, like all the cool movies I wanna do. […] But yes it was for College Republicans which could still happen but just not in the time slot we were hoping for.” - Empire podcast [10.31.2014]
Dan Rad REALLY wants to film Young Americans (prev. College Republicans) with his bff, okay? Dir. John Krokidas kindly replied to eyebagdehaan after they tweeted him about it and said a petition could help finally make it happen.
HEY HEY HEY remember the petition you may have signed a few days / weeks ago??? The movie it was made for is FINALLY freaking ON!
“Everybody at StarStream Media and Destro Films are excited to finally be making this movie. We have been trying to get this script since it won the Black List in 2010 and thanks to the incredible team who kept this film alive (Bruce Cohen, Rena Ronson, Wes Jones and John Krokidas), we have the pleasure of working with Krokidas and DP, Reed Morano,” said StarStream Media CEO Kim Leadford. “We loved their 1940s aesthetic in Kill Your Darlings, and look forward to watching them build the look of the 70s; which is one of the coolest eras, in my opinion.” [x]
Young Americans is set to go into production this fall.
