Perpetually busy actor Jonah Hill has inked his first directing deal. It's a dramedy called Mid-'90s, and he wrote the script as well.

"Plot details are vague," Variety writes, "but sources say the film follows a young boy coming up in Los Angeles in the mid-1990s learning life lessons with his skateboarding crew of friends."

Hill, a two-time Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominee (2012 for Moneyball, 2014 for The Wolf of Wall Street), is not planning to act in Mid-'90s. His previous producer credits include the 21 Jump Street films and The Sitter.

The 32-year-old recently hosted Saturday Night Live, where Future joined his monologue for a "Jumpman" duet. The 32-year-old's next film is Aug. 19's War Dogs, co-starring Miles Teller; check out the trailer here.
