Comedian David Cross has been in all sorts of staple entertainment from his revered turn as Tobias Funke in "Arrested Development" to small appearances in films like Men in Black, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and unfortunately Alvin and the Chipmunks (everyone needs a paycheck). Now Cross is getting behind the camera for his feature directorial debut with Hits, a dark comedy exploring fame in the YouTube era with a focus on a small town in upstate New York where people have unrealistic expectations about their lives. Comedians Matt Walsh, James Adomian, Derek Waters and more star in the film, and we have the first look photos for the film which will premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival next month. Look!
Here's the first photos from David Cross' directorial debut Hits from Sundance:
Hits is written and directed by David Cross ("Arrested Development" & "Mr. Show with Bob and David"). A small town in upstate New York is populated by people who wallow in unrealistic expectations. There, fame, delusion, earnestness, and recklessness meet, shake hands, and disrupt the lives around them. The cast includes Meredith Hagner, Matt Walsh, James Adomian, Jake Cherry, Derek Waters, Wyatt Cenac with appearances from the likes of Julia Stiles, Michael Cera, David Koechner, Amy Sedaris, Jason Rittter and more. The film hits the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in January but doesn't have an official release date yet.
