Emile Hirsch Joins Craig Roberts’ Directorial Debut JUST JIM

Though Submarine star Craig Roberts is just 23 years old, he’s already gearing up to begin production on his directorial debut.  Roberts will lead Just Jim, which revolves around “a teenage loser whose life is turned around by the appearance of an enigmatic, handsome neighbor.”  ScreenDaily reports that Emile Hirsch has now joined the cast, and one imagines he’d be a swell fit for the aforementioned neighbor.  Filming begins in Wales this week, and co-stars include Aneirin Hughes, Nia Roberts, Richard Harrington, Matthew Aubrey, and newcomers Ryan Owen and Charlotte Randall.  The pic will be released in the UK and Ireland sometime in 2015.

The Welsh Roberts—who was recently seen onscreen in Neighbors, The Double, 22 Jump Street—previously directed a music video for the band Los Campesinos, but Just Jim marks his first time helming a feature film.  He’s definitely a promising young talent in front of the camera, so I’m curious to see how he fares behind the scenes.
