9 Upcoming Jonah Hill Movies and TV Shows We Are Excited About

Jonah Hill is one of the few actors in Hollywood who can be classified into the category of Jack of all traits. He’s not only a versatile actor, but also a comedian, a producer, a screenwriter and a soon to-be director. Of many of his striking features, I think it’s his dedication and willingness to get out of the comfort zone that earned him a spot on Forbes magazine. To see what I am talking about check out our list of best Jonah Hill movies (click here). His performances always leave you craving for more. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Jonah Hill movie? Well, you are at the right place. Here’s the list of upcoming Jonah Hill films scheduled to release in 2018 and 2019. We can only hope that the latest new Jonah Hill movies could be as good as some of his recent ones.

7. 23 MiB (TBA)

Earlier, it was announced that there will be a crossover between Jump Street franchise and Men in Black universe and Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum will reprise their respective roles but there is no development since then. Being a fan of both, I feel Jump Street’s humor mixed MiB’s Sci-fi would make a good recipe.

6. The Beach Bum (2018)

This film is about a rebellious stoner named Moondog. While Matthew McConaughey plays Moondog (who I have no doubt will nail the role), Jonah Hill will be seen in a supporting role. Isla Fisher will be seen as the female lead. Written and directed by Harmony Korine, this film also stars Zac Efron. Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey previously collaborated on The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), for which Hill earned an academy award nomination (Best Actor in a supporting role).
