Jeff Baena Wiki – Jeff Baena Biography
Jeff Baena is an American screenwriter and film director known for Life After Beth, Joshy, The Little Hours, and for co-writing I Heart Huckabees with David O. Russell. He was born in Miami, Florida and grew up in South Florida, and later studied film at New York University. He lives and works in California. After graduating, he migrated to Los Angeles to start building his career. He became a production assistant for Robert Zemeckis, working on a number of films. After working with Zemeckis, he began working as an assistant editor for writer-director David O. Russell. After a year-and-a-half of working together, a minor car accident injured one of his eyes. Partially to keep his spirits up and pass the time during his recovery from that, Russell started discussing story ideas with him. The two ended up collaborating on four scripts together.
One of those four scripts was I Heart Huckabees, which Russell directed in 2004. At the same time, she started to focus his career on writing and wrote the zombie comedy Life After Beth, which would wind up being his debut feature as a director. Baena had planned for Joshy to be his directorial debut, but actor and collaborator Adam Pally had to pull out for personal reasons. Baena then decided to work on Life After Beth, which he had started writing in 2003. The next film for Baena was The Little Hours, which was released in 2017. The film features actors Alison Brie, Dave Franco, Kate Micucci, Aubrey Plaza, John C. Reilly, and Molly Shannon along with multiple cameos. His next film Horse Girl, which he wrote with Alison Brie, who stars in the film, had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2020.
