This Friday, director Nima Nourizadeh’s Project X brings a new twist to the “found footage” genre, purporting to be the assembled video footage of the most out-of-control party of all time.
Jonathan Daniel Brown, Thomas Mann and Oliver Cooper star as JB, Thomas and Costa, three high school friends who, with JB’s parents out of town, decide to throw a birthday party and document it as they go. Produced by The Hangover director Todd Phillips (and evoking his early documentary, Frat House), Project X promises a hilariously depraved look at American youth.
ComingSoon.net sat down to speak with Nourizadeh, Phillips and the cast (which also includes Kirby Bliss Blanton and Alexis Knapp) about the unusual approach to a high school sex comedy, capturing the reality within the extreme and comparing the film’s coming-of-age tale to decidedly tamer youth-gone-wild classics (specifically, to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, which Phillips recently homaged).
