Oscar nominee Jesse Eisenberg is often characterized as overly articulate, genius but anxious men, so he’s excited to switch completely for the Zellner Brothers’ upcoming movie.

‘I play a Sasquatch,’ teased the New York-born, New Jersey-raised 38-year-old Variety on Saturday.

“Full makeup, full body hair, no lines. I growl, but no lines. I’m so looking forward to this.’

The New York-born, New Jersey-raised 38-year-old teased Variety on Saturday: “I play a Sasquatch. Full makeup, full body hair, no lines. I growl, but no lines. I’m so looking forward to this’ (“Big Foot” in the 1967 Patterson-Gimlin film)

The Big Foot movie would reunite Jesse with David Zellner, whom he co-starred in Riley Stearns’ acclaimed 2019 comedy The Art of Self-Defense, which was executive produced by Nathan Zellner.

The 47-year-old fraternal twins already shot their alien thriller Alpha Gang – starring Andrea Riseborough, Jon Hamm and Nicholas Hoult – in Eastern Europe last year.

So it seems more likely that the Zellners are making a big-screen version of their 2010 five-minute short Sasquatch Birth Journal 2.

Programming Notes from the Sundance Institute readSasquatch fanatics since childhood, the Zellner Brothers see the sasquatch as a friend, but also recognize their “unhealthy, unrealistic desire to pet and cuddle wild animals.”
