Looks like Phoebe Bridgers will be the latest celebrity to make the big move from singing to acting as the musician is set to have her big screen debut!

The star has certainly been keeping herself busy this year, having jetted off on her 2022 Reunion tour in April earlier this year, which is set to finish up before the end of the month. And now she’s showing no signs of slowing down!

Starring as part of Haley Dahl’s Sloppy Jane, Bridgers is just one of a few musical artists included in the rockstar-studded cast for Jane Schoenbrun’s I Saw the TV Glow.

Limp Bizkit musician Fred Durst and Lindsey Jordan (AKA Snail Mail) also feature, alongside actors Justice Smith, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Danielle Deadwyler, and Helena Howard.

Produced by A24 and Emma Stone’s production company, Fruit Tree, I Saw the Tv Glow revolves around two teenage outcasts (played by Smith and Lundy-Paine,), who bond over their love of a spooky television show. When the show is mysteriously cancelled, though, “the boundary between TV and reality begins to blur.”

Jane was all too proud to share the casting news on Twitter, writing, “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.”

The talented filmmaker is best known for We’re All Going to the World’s Fair, a fascinating, unsettling feature that centres on a lonely teenager participating in a creepy, body-changing online challenge.

Jane has spoken out before on how their journey to filmmaking seemed to parallel them coming out as trans.

Telling IndieWire, “I kept finding that every screenplay I wrote was about trans shit,” Jane says. “This was before I knew I was trans, which is ridiculous. The warning signs that the universe sends you are so loud, or that your subconscious sends you.”

So when and where can we expect to see it? Well, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the project is now in post-production, with filming having wrapped a week ago. A 2023 premiere at Sundance (where World’s Fair first showed) is not out of the question, but we’ll just have to wait and see and see for confirmation on that one!
