Jessica Rose Weiss (Cinderella, Trouble, Afterlife of the Party, Friendsgiving) has recently been scoring the upcoming comedy 1UP. The film is directed by Kyle Newman (Fanboys, Barely Lethal) and stars Paris Berelc, Ruby Rose, Taylor Zakhar Perez, Hari Nef and Nicholas Coombe. The movie centers on a young woman who quits her college esports team due to gaslighting from her male counterparts and tries to find a coach and assemble a whole new varsity-caliber team capable of reaching the State Finals. Julia Yorks wrote the screenplay. BuzzFeed’s Richard Alan Reid (Frat Pack) is producing the project with Michael Philip & Jason Moring (The Doorman). 1UP is expected to be released in 2022 by Lionsgate.

Weiss’ other recent projects include Sonja O’Hara’s indie thriller Root Letter and Camille Hardman’s & Gary Lane’s documentary Still Working 9 to 5, which both are awaiting release dates.
