‘Banana Split’s’ Hannah Marks Set to Helm American High YA Comedy ‘The Swimsuit Issue’

Hot off their premiere of Banana Split at the LA Film Festival, Hannah Marks and American High will be teaming up again on the award-winning black list script The Swimsuit Issue. The Banana Split star, co-writer and producer will be directing the script written by Randall Green (Billions). George Heller will produce alongside Jeremy Garelick and Will Phelps from American High.

This has been a busy year for Hannah as she recently co-wrote & co-directed After Everything with Joey Power, starring Jeremy Allen White and Maika Monroe, which first premiered to critical praise at SXSW earlier this year. The film is now in limited theaters across the country, having opened on Friday. Check out the synopsis for The Swimsuit Issue below!

The Swimsuit Issue tells the story of a nerdy high schooler, who fancies himself an amateur photographer, attempting to create a “Swimsuit Issue” featuring his high school classmates in hopes of raising enough money to go to summer camp.

The film will continue the partnership between Jeremy Garelick’s American High and Mickey Liddell’s LD Entertainment. LD will fully finance the film.

Marks is represented by UTA, Untitled, Circle of Confusion and Bloom Hergott Diemer. Green is represented by UTA.
