Originally set to be Jonah Hill’s directorial debut, the Black List-approved “Kitchen Sink”—described as “The Breakfast Club” meets “Zombieland” with vampires and an alien invasion thrown in for good measure—has beefed its cast with some solid comedic forces. Deadline is reporting that Patton Oswalt, Bob Odenkirk and Ian Roberts (the Literal Doctor on “Arrested Development” and “Key & Peele” showrunner) have joined the film in unnamed roles, though it’s highly likely that the roles will be teachers or school administrators, given the high school setting of the genre mash-up.

Who would’ve thought that Jonah Hill, who started his career off with bit parts in David O. Russell’s “I Heart Huckabees” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” would someday be an Academy Award-nominated actor? Fresh off some Oscar clout for his superb dramatic turn in “Moneyball,” he’s continuing with his ambitious ventures in writing and producing, along with earning roles in highly touted upcoming comedies like “21 Jump Street” and “Neighborhood Watch.” Though it was back in September we showed you Hill’s directing debut, with the charming Sara Bareilles-crooned video for “Gonna Get Over You,” there was another project that caught Hill’s eye for his feature debut: "The Kitchen Sink."

When Jonah Hill came on the scene, popping up in David O. Russell's "I Heart Huckabees" and Judd Apatow's "The 40 Year Old Virgin," no one thought much of the young comic except that he was already stealing scenes from vets with a few more years of experience. But for anyone who has been paying attention to him behind the scenes, it's been pretty apparent his ambitions were big. He's taken to the pen, with films like "The Adventurer's Handbook" and the animated "Sausage Party" in the works, and he's even developing television programs, recently selling a project to Fox. So no surprise that the young talent has plotted a major next move.
