About Parachute Movie:

Parachute is an American drama film directed by Brittany Snow in her directorial debut. Snow co-wrote the script with Becca Gleason. Produced by Yale Entertainment, the film stars Courtney Eaton and Thomas Mann.

The project was announced as “September 17th” in February 2022 for Yale Productions with Jordan Yale Levine and Jordan Beckerman producing along with Lizzie Shapiro.

Brittany Snow directed and produced the picture, and co-wrote the script with Becca Gleason. Snow said she had the idea for the film in her “early twenties”. She has spoken previously about her own battle with eating disorders and rigorously planned “darker” scenes with storyboards so as to avoid Eaton spending more time than necessary in scenes criticizing her own body, saying “I knew what I wanted very specifically in those scenes, I knew what angles I wanted to use, so I didn’t have to have her cry hysterically all day.” The film was scored by Keegan DeWitt.

In March 2022, Kid Cudi was announced to be cast in the project. In June 2022, Eaton, Mann, Rodríguez, and McHale were confirmed in the main roles.

Parachute had its premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin on March 11, 2023. The film was released in the United States in select theaters on April 5, 2024.
