If you’ve been following the headlines recently, then you know Pete Davidson is growing tired of Saturday Night Live. It’s likely this season or next will be his last on the show.
And it looks like following his SNL gig, he wants to transition into movies.
The 26-year-old comedian is the star of the upcoming comedy The King of Staten Island. The movie is described as “semi-autobiographical” and was co-written by Davidson himself.
Judd Apatow directed the project, which was originally set to release inside theaters across the country. Due to the coronavirus, the release date was canceled, and those involved decided a streaming/on demand release would be best.
The movie will premiere on demand on June 12.
The movie follows Davidson as Scott, a 20-something aspiring tattoo artist living at home in his New York City borough hometown, still grieving the loss of his firefighter father, who died 17 years prior.
As most of you know, Davidson’s dad in real life was a first responder in New York City during the 9/11 attacks. He died when Pete was just 7-years-old.
