Back in November, it was revealed the coming-of-age drama, directed by Jason Orley, was heading to the Sundance Film Festival. The film follows a teen from the suburbs who is under the guidance of his college dropout best friend.

After making its Sundance debut, the film scored a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes with Davidson earning praise over his leading role and strong performance.

According to Deadline, Hulu has now acquired the movie in a deal worth $4 million.

The cast of Big Time Adolescence got really close during filming. MGK even told a story about how Davidson drove six hours to EST Fest in Ohio to see him perform.

During filming, Machine Gun Kelly even gave Davidson a real tattoo.

Davidson showed off his ink during an interview with the Hollywood Reporter at Sundance Film Festival. They wanted the scene to be authentic which is why he didn’t fake it.

“He actually killed it,” Davidson said about MGK’s tattoo skills. “He did great work. He’s very proud of his work.”

MGK commented during the interview that the “Z” in “Zeke” is so much thicker than the other letters because it was when they were starting to roll. He kept having to go over the letter to make it look real.

MGK also spoke to IndieWire about the tattoo in a bit more detail.

“We were kinda throwin’ in different kick it situations, and one of them, Pete was like, ‘We should do a tattoo scene,’” MGK said. “Being the way that we are, we were like, ‘We should just do this for real,’ so we got a tattoo gun.”

It’s currently unknown when the film will be available on Hulu.

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
