Michael Cera is one of the actors that we never thought to direct their own projects. The fact that he is now a director will either get you super happy or not phase you at all. You decide where you fall in that subject. Yesterday Michael made his directorial debut with Brazzaville Teen-Ager. He will be starring and directing in this film. Along with him, Charles Grodin and Kelis (R&B singer) will be starring in this film. This movie is an adaption of Bruce Jay Friedman’s 1966 story.

Brazzaville is about a young man who reunite with his dying father by enlisting his boss and the singer of the “Milkshake” to perform a song for his father. Cera plays a familiar character. We know that the project was produced by company Jash, the film was made up by Sarah Silverman.  Jash prides itself on being the “first fully realized network to offer all its comedic partners complete creative autonomy.”Cera just wrapped work on the Evan Goldberg. Let us know what you make about the first-time director’s 19-minute movie, below.
