EXCLUSIVE: Keith L. Williams, Brady Noon, Molly Gordon and Midori Francis are joining Universal Pictures/Point Grey’s R-rated comedy Good Boys, about four 12-year-old boys who skip school and embark on a day-long adventure fraught with comedic peril across the San Fernando Valley.
Jacob Tremblay is already headlining the comedy, written by The Office alums Lee Eisenberg & Gene Stupnitsky, who are also making their feature directorial debut here. Universal acquired the script earlier this year in a competitive situation and the project, billed as being in the spirit of Superbad and Sausage Party, goes before the cameras later this month for a scheduled August 16, 2019 release.

Williams is known for his work on the Fox comedy series The Last Man on Earth in which he has played Jasper over 17 episodes.
Noon made his mark playing Tommy, the young son of slain gangster Jimmy Darmody, on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.
Gordon recently starred in the New Line Melissa McCarthy comedy Life of the Party. She also stars on TNT’s Animal Kingdom as Nicky, and will be seen in Annapurna Pictures’ upcoming Olivia Wilde-directed comedy Booksmart.
Francis stars in this summer’s Ocean’s 8 and played the role of Emma Hsueh on Fox’s Gotham.
