TAIKA WAITITI’S “JOJO RABBIT” Has Begun Production Starring Sam Rockwell & Scarlett Johansson

Fox Searchlight Pictures announced today that principal photography on JOJO RABBIT has begun in and around Prague, Czech Republic. The film is written and directed by Taika Waititi (HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE, THOR: RAGNAROK) and stars Golden Globe® nominated Scarlett Johansson (AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, LOST IN TRANSLATION), Academy Award® winner Sam Rockwell (THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI, SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS), Rebel Wilson (PITCH PERFECT, BRIDESMAIDS), Thomasin McKenzie (THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES, LEAVE NO TRACE), and introducing Roman Griffin Davis as Jojo. The film’s producers are Waititi, Carthew Neal (HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE) and Chelsea Winstanley (WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS) with Kevan Van Thompson (THE ZOOKEEPER’S WIFE) serving as executive producer.

“I’m stoked to begin shooting my anti-war satire. We’ve assembled an incredible cast and I couldn’t be more excited to finally ridicule Nazis and their beliefs. This film is going to piss off a lot of racists and that makes me very happy,” said Waititi.

“Taika is a master at bringing honesty and humanity to the surface in any story, all while allowing us to laugh. We could not be more thrilled to join him in the remarkable journey of Jojo Rabbit,” said Presidents of Production Matthew Greenfield and David Greenbaum.

In JOJO RABBIT, writer director Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to a World War II satire. The story follows an awkward young German boy (Roman Griffin) raised by a single mother (Scarlett Johansson), and whose only ally is his imaginary friend Hitler (Waititi). His naïve patriotism is tested when he meets a young girl (Thomasin McKenzie) who upends his world views, forcing him to face his biggest fears.

Joining Waititi on the film is director of photography Mihai Malaimare Jr. (THE MASTER), production designer Ra Vincent (THOR: RAGNAROK), editor Tom Eagles (HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), costume designer Mayes Rubeo (THOR: RAGNAROK) and make-up and hair designer Dannelle Satherley (HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE).

The film will be overseen by Presidents of Production David Greenbaum and Matthew Greenfield, SVP of Production DanTram Nguyen and VP of Production Taylor Friedman.

Behind The Scenes of Disney's Dumbo

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. A new trailer, images and poster are now available. The trailer features Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Finley Hobbins and Nico Parker.



Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland.

Who Is Pete Davidson 'The King of Staten Island' Featurette

Scott (Davidson) has been a case of arrested development ever since his firefighter father died when he was seven. He’s now reached his mid-20s having achieved little, chasing a dream of becoming a tattoo artist that seems far out of reach. As his ambitious younger sister (Maude Apatow, HBO’s Euphoria) heads off to college, Scott is still living with his exhausted ER nurse mother (Oscar® winner Marisa Tomei) and spends his days smoking weed, hanging with the guys—Oscar (Ricky Velez, Master of None), Igor (Moises Arias, Five Feet Apart) and Richie (Lou Wilson, TV’s The Guest Book)—and secretly hooking up with his childhood friend Kelsey (Bel Powley, Apple TV+’s The Morning Show).



But when his mother starts dating a loudmouth firefighter named Ray (Bill Burr, Netflix’s F Is for Family), it sets off a chain of events that will force Scott to grapple with his grief and take his first tentative steps toward moving forward in life.

The film also stars Steve Buscemi as Papa, a veteran firefi…
