Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson will lead the drama Big Time Adolescence.

The movie, which was featured on the 2014 Black List, follows a teen boy coming of age in his dull suburban town under the destructive guidance of his best friend, a charismatic college dropout (Davidson). 

Machine Gun Kelly and Griffin Gluck are also set to star in the pic, along with Sydney Sweeney, Thomas Barbusca, Emily Arlook, and Oona Lawrence.

Big Time Adolescence, which will begin shooting next month, will be the directorial debut of Jason Orley, who penned the screenplay.

Will Phelps, Glen Trotiner, Mason Novick and Jeremy Garelick are producing the project. American High — a recently formed partnership between screenwriter Jeremy Garelick and Mickey Liddell’s LD Entertainment that focuses on high school-set comedies — is set to finance.

Davidson's feature credits include the Amy Schumer comedy Trainwreck and the newly released Netflix rom-com Set It Up
