'90s Kids: You Officially Have Your Own Movie, Thanks To Jonah Hill

Somebody call Thora Birch

If reboots and revivals of your favorite '90s programming wasn't enough to quench your thirst for nostalgia, Hollywood is upping the ante with an entire film about the joys of being a '90s kid.

Jonah Hill is set to make his directorial debut with a coming-of-age drama that he wrote called Mid '90s, according to Variety. The plot reportedly follows a young boy living in Los Angles in -- wait for it -- the mid '90s, where he apparently learns "life lessons with his skateboarding crew of friends."

In other words, we have now reached peak '90s.

While further information about the project is relatively sparse, we know how these '90s coming-of-age dramas tend to work. Obviously, the main protagonist and his ragtag crew of skateboarding friends will contemplate the fragility of life, possibly by discovering a dead body and/or touching their first real boob -- all while munching on Dunkaroos and slurping Go-Gurt before bedtime. Of course if you don't want to wait for Hill's coming-of-age tale, you can always watch Now And Then, a.k.a an actual coming-of-story story set (and released!) in the '90s.

Anyway, if Hill is going to go through with this, here's hoping he can find a way to resurrect the spirit of 12-year-old Thora Birch. Everyone knows it's not officially a '90s movie unless the plucky star of Monkey Trouble is involved.
