Jonah Hill is attached to star in the thriller “Uncut Gems” which A24 has acquired the worldwide rights for.
The movie is set in the New York City Diamond District, but plot specifics are vague. What is known is that “Good Time” directors Josh and Benny Safdie will helm from a script they co-wrote with Ronald Bronstein.
Scott Rudin, Eli Bush, Sebastian Bear-McClard and Oscar Boyson will produce while Martin Scorsese and Emma Tillinger Koskoff will serve as executive producers. A24 is planning to take the film to Cannes to sell.
