'Jojo Rabbit' director Taika Waititi has boarded Billy Luther's 'Frybread Face and Me' as an executive producer.
Taika Waititi is to executive produce 'Frybread Face and Me'.
The 45-year-old filmmaker has boarded Billy Luther's film, which follows two cousins from different worlds who bond during a summer herding sheep on their grandmother's ranch in Arizona.
In the film, the pair learn more about their family's past and themselves, Variety reports.
Luther is writing and directing the semi-autobiographical flick and revealed that Taika – who is currently working on the Marvel project 'Thor: Love and Thunder' and an untitled 'Star Wars' film – immediately signed up after reading the script.
Taika is set to helm his second 'Thor' film in the upcoming Marvel movie and previously suggested that sparks could fly between Chris Hemsworth's superhero and Natalie Portman's returning Jane Foster, as he described the motion picture as "very romantic".
The 'Jojo Rabbit' director said: "I think it's going to be really good. We've been writing the script off and on for a year and I'm just, actually this week, doing another pass on it.
"It is so insane and it's also very romantic. I'm into romances now. I want to make romance. I want to make something that I've never done or cared for. I would like to attack something like that."
Taika also revealed he's grateful that the coronavirus pandemic had given him more time to perfect the script for the project.
He explained: "There are a few positive things I can take away. One of them is that a lot of these films, and films in general, are rushed or you don't have as much time as you'd want to have on the script and things like that.
"We're still writing 'Love and Thunder' and I think it's good to just keep writing and then you know, we'll have a really, really good script.
"And with writing, especially, you should use as much of that time as possible to get your story right, because you never really get it later on.
"Film is an industry where you're always complaining about not having enough time. I think, right now, we've given ourselves a huge amount of time to work on all sorts of things so we may as well use it."
Nobody is impressed by Demi "coming to the rescue".
