Pic also stars Julia Fox (Uncut GemsNo Sudden Move), Tim Heidecker (First Time Female Director, Us), comedian Jim Jefferies (The Jim Jefferies Show), and hip hop phenoms Guapdad 4000 and Grammy nominee Tierra Whack, both in their feature film debuts. 

Him is produced by Ian Cooper (NopeUs), Jordan Peele (Nope, Get Out), Win Rosenfeld (CandymanLovecraft Country) and Jamal M. Watson (HalaSprinter) for Monkeypaw Productions and is executive produced by David Kern (The Bikeriders, Flamin’ Hot) and Monkeypaw’s Kate Oh.

Monkeypaw currently has the Dev Patel feature, Monkey Man, in theaters where it has grossed over $33M worldwide.
