It's been 11 long years since we first fell for Jonah Hill as he tried to purchase a hot pair of glittered, knee-high boots-cum-fish tanks in The 40 Year Old Virgin — which you can watch in the clip below, because it's hilarious — and in the years passed, not only has he dominated the comedy genre, he's also proved himself a fantastic dramatic actor via The Wolf of Wall Street.

If you loved him in his previous roles you’ll be dying to know the next Jonah Hill films where you can watch this funny guy in action. Unless you’re a die-hard Hillbilly, you might not be aware what upcoming Jonah Hill releases there are set to be and what he's up to in 2017. So to help keep you on top of this joker‘s anticipated new movie releases, we've made a handy list of new & upcoming Jonah Hill films and TV shows. From Animated flicks to dramatic retellings of true events, the latest flicks from Jonah Hill should get fans of the Cali-comedian excited for these movies and series coming out.

1. How To Train Your Dragon 3

  • Release date: May 18, 2018
  • Director: Dean DeBlois
  • Cast: Kristen Wiig, Gerard Butler, Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill

Hill will be lending his vocal talents to the character Snotlout Jorgenson in a continuation of the adventures of the young Viking Hiccup and his dragon, Toothless. For anyone who needs some dragon-shaped closure this should hit the spot. The last two movies in the franchise were pretty damn amazing, hitting 98% and 91% on Rotten Tomatoes, respectively, so there are high-hopes for number three.

2. Maniac (TV Show)

  • Release date: TBA (2018)
  • Director: TBA
  • Cast: Emma Stone

Maniac is a project based on a 2014 Norwegian TV show of the same name, the narrative of which centers on a guy who lives a fantasy life in his dreams, but in reality is locked up in an institution. What better reason to tune in than Hill and Stone? IT'S A SUPERBAD REUNION, GUYS. But seriously, though, hailing from Paramount and banking a 10-episode straight-to-series order from Netflix certainly bodes well. And if The Bridge and The Killing have taught us anything, it's that Scandinavians know how to make bloody great TV dramas.

3. Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot

  • Release date: TBA (2018)
  • Director: Gus Van Sant
  • Cast: Joaquin Pheonix, Jonah Hill, Rooney Mara

Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot is a biography drama about a man called John Callahan who, at the unfortunate age of 21 was involved in a brutal car accident that left him paralyzed. This movie tells the story of how he turned to drawing as a form of therapy. John Callahan's story is truly fascinating, and the cast members mentioned above are joined by an equally intriguing smattering of stars such as Jack Black and The Gossip's Beth Ditto.

4. The Ballad Of Richard Jewell

  • Director: Ezra Edelman
  • Cast: Jonah Hill

Death, terrorism, unjust accusations and FAKE NEWS. The Ballad of Richard Jewell will tell the story of American security guard Richard Jewell, who saves thousands of lives during a bombing at the 1996 Olympics, but is accused of being a terrorist by the press. Watch for a sobering reminder of how shit people can be.

5. MIB 23

  • Release date: TBA
  • Director: James Bobin
  • Cast: Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill

Though the future is unclear for this bonkers concept that threatens to merge the franchise worlds of Men in Black and the Jump Street, as it remains on Hills's IMDb page, so on the list it goes! One would assume it'll brim with otherworldly bizarrities and sharp suits. Action, aliens and 's guns will make it a guaranteed must-watch. Bish, bash, bosh.

6. Uncut Gems

  • Release date: TBA
  • Directors: Ben Safdie, Joshua Safdie
  • Cast: Jonah Hill

Marking yet another return of his dramatic side, Jonah Hill is set to star in the upcoming thriller, Uncut Gems. Plot details are pretty thin on the ground at this stage, but we do know the movie will take place in the diamond district of New York. Set for a premier in Cannes, could this be another Academy Award nomination in the making for Hill?

7. The Shivering Truth

  • Release date: TBA
  • Directors: Vernon Chatman, Cat Solen
  • Cast: Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Vernon Chatman

Back to the comedy for Hill this time in the upcoming stop-motion TV film from Adult Swim. Teaming up with his Superbad co-star Michael Cera, the two will be voicing characters in The Shivering Truth, a dark, surrealist comedy which has been described in completely transparent terms by its creators as "a miniature propulsive omnibus clusterbomb of painfully riotous daymares all dripping with the orange goo of dream logic."

Which Jonah Hill project are you looking forward to the most?
