Pete Davidson’s friends are worried about him as he accepts a prestigious role with Netflix.
“I Slept with Joey Ramone,” a music biopic about the King of Punk’s life, will reportedly be based on Mickey Leigh’s memoir of the same name, written by Joey Ramone’s brother, and will star the “Saturday Night Live” comic.
According to Deadline, the screenplay was written by Pete and Jason Orley, who previously directed him in “Big Time Adolescence.” According to reports, Joey Ramone’s estate has offered its support and assistance to the initiative.
Friends of Kim Kardashian’s 29-year-old ex-boyfriend are concerned that he won’t be able to control his “demons” while playing the part.
According to a Hollywood insider who spoke to The Sun, there are concerns about the strains of recreating the iconic role, given Pete Davidson’s mental health issues.
The late Ramones vocalist Joey, real name Jeffrey Ross Hyman, was diagnosed with schizophrenia when he was 18 years old. He struggled with obsessive-compulsive disorder before dying of cancer in 2001.
Pete, who was seven years old when his father was killed in the 9/11 attacks, has a history of making suicide threats.
Emily Ratajkowski’s new boyfriend was reportedly drawn to the role of Joey Ramone because it allowed him to use his personal misfortunes for more than just funny or cringe-worthy moments.
Pete appears to be contemplating his future after leaving the popular Saturday show. By taking on this project with Netflix, the comedian appears to be attempting to gain public respect for the performing arts.
However, assuming the job is extremely difficult for him.
However, “falling that far down this rabbit hole is perilous, especially with everything Pete is now managing,” according to the insider.
Pete has been under a lot of pressure since leaving Saturday Night Live, and this is by far his most difficult assignment to date, according to the sources.
Despite his achievements, Pete Davidson appears to still act as if he has a lot to prove, and an insider believes this is a surefire way to end badly.
In addition to “I Slept with Joey Ramone,” Pete will appear in the sequel to “The Suicide Squad,” which will be released in August, and “American Sole,” which will be released at a later date.
