Craig Roberts has found success as an actor in the likes of Submarine, 22 Jump Street and The Double. Now at just 23-years-old he’s stretching his wings into the world of directing with Just Jim.
He’s also set to star in the film and has snagged a great co-star, as Screendaily reports Emile Hirsch will also appear.
The film ‘centres on Jim, a teenage loser who life is turned around by the appearance of an enigmatic, handsome neighbour.’ There’s no news on exactly how Jim’s life might change, so we’ll just have imagine.
The film is taking advantage of a new scheme in Wales to support emerging talent and will shoot over the next three weeks in Caerphilly.
Roberts comments, “It’s surreal to be back in my home town shooting a movie. I’m excited to work with a great cast and I hope Emile likes Maesycwmmer.”
