Phoebe Bridgers, Snail Mail’s Lindsey Jordan, and Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst are set to appear in I Saw the TV Glow, a new horror film from We’re All Going to the World’s Fair director Jane Schoenbrun, as The Hollywood Reporter reports.
The film follows two teenaged outcasts, played by Justice Smith Brigette Lundy-Paine, who obsess over a scary television show, but the line between TV and reality begins to blur when the show mysteriously gets canceled.
Haley Dahl’s Sloppy Jane (featuring Phoebe Bridgers) will appear in the film alongside the band King Woman. As Stereogum points out, the director recently responded to a tweet that read “bring back sick bands in fake clubs on tv shows” by saying: “on it.” The cast also includes Amber Benson, Ian Foreman, Michael Maronna, Conner O’Malley, Emma Portner, and Danny Tamberelli.
“Big news!! Behold the cast of I SAW THE TV GLOW, which if I might humbly brag is the coolest, wildest (and queerest) cast anyone has assembled in a minute,” Schoenbrun tweeted. “I cannot wait for everyone to see the incredible work we all made together!!”
“Just honored beyond belief to announce that I’m acting in the fucking genius Jane Schoenbrun’s new movie I Saw the TV Glow,” Snail Mail wrote on Instagram.
I Saw the TV Glow is produced by A24 and Emma Stone’s Fruit Tree. We’re All Going to the World’s Fair, Jane Schoenbrun’s debut feature, came out earlier this year with a soundtrack composed by Alex G.
