Lilly Wachowski is directing a new movie, Trash Mountain, starring Caleb Hearon.

Per Collider, Wachowski has signed on to direct a new movie titled Trash Mountain. Hearon wrote the screenplay with Ruby Caster, while Jurassic World’s Colin Trevorrow, Eddie Vaisman, and Julia Lebedev are producing the movie.

The movie follows a twentysomething gay man who lives in Chicago but must return home to Missouri following the death of his father, who was an “obsessive hoarder.”

“When my pal Caleb Hearon sent me Trash Mountain I leapt at the chance to direct it. So beautiful and sad and funny! Queer representation and stories are vital at this time as we are being shoved further into the margins. Our amazing writers, Caleb and Ruby are a shining light in all this dang darkness,” Wachowski said.

Trevorrow added, “Caleb Hearon and Ruby Caster are true originals and Lilly Wachowski is a living legend. I’m insanely lucky to call them collaborators and friends.”
