Published Jan 27, 2017Michelle Williams continues to stay busy with a wide variety of roles. While the actress prepares to take on Janis Joplin in one of many long-gestating biopics, she's just booked another period piece. Rather than Joplin's hippie days, her other film is set in the mid-'90s. How do we know? The film is called Mid-90s.
The film marks the directorial debut of Jonah Hill, who also wrote its screenplay. It's a coming-of-age dramedy set in Los Angeles, following the life of a young skateboarder named Stevie.
Williams is set to play Stevie's dependent single mother in the film, which will contain a mix of laughs and serious drama.
Mid-90s is expected to begin production this summer. It's being produced by A24.
