'Pure Imagination': Jonah Hill as Apatow Progeny

hillMaybe you remember him only as the pushy-pudgy kid in The 40 Year Old Virgin with an eye for pimp-ish goldfish platforms, but the 23 year-old Jonah Hill has enough going for him that hot-commodity director/producer Judd Apatow has decided to rest a handful of movie prospects on his shoulders. Jonah, who along with Michael Cera might see more on-screen time in next month’s Superbad than in all of his previous roles combined, has two additional projects lined up with Apatow as producer. He told MTV News of his latest, Pure Imagination, which he wrote and will star in, saying “Basically, I go through a bunch of traumatic stuff, and I develop an imaginary friend. Then what happens is I meet a girl, and we start dating…but the problem is I don’t know whether she [actually] exists [or] whether she’s a figment of my imagination.”

Looking to give the film more of a surrealist Eternal Sunshine-like bent, Johan goes on to say “It’s trying to do what we do with ‘Knocked Up,’ ‘Superbad’ and ‘Virgin’, and mix it a little bit with stuff that Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry do,” he said. “It’s kind of like a little bit artisier. I’m so psyched about it; I’m the producer, and Judd’s the producer, and it’s cool.”

Jonah Hill reel: Thoughtful film criticism in a Knocked Up deleted scene. R-Rated Superbad trailer. Guesting on this Human Giant spot, though it’s much more of a Mary Lynn Rajskub vehicle. Not that anyone’s complaining.

    I wrote a comedy for universal studios called ‘Bring in the Heat’ about two high school nerds joining a wrestling team.
    It’s actually done and i wanted superbad co star christopher mintz-plasse, zach galanfankis,
    and jonah hill to be in it.
