    Pete Davidson And Machine Gun Kelly's Bromance Is So Good, Hulu Paid $4 Million For It

    Their bromance is irresistible, apparently.

    BFFs Pete Davidson and Machine Gun Kelly have yet another film together — and Hulu just paid $4 million for it. Big Time Adolescence now belongs to the streaming service, as Deadline reports.

    The film, which currently holds a 90 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes since premiering at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, is exactly what it sounds like: a coming-of-age comedy.

    According to the film's official description, "A suburban teenager comes of age under the destructive guidance of his best friend, a charismatic college dropout."

    The cast is rounded out by Griffin Gluck, of course Machine Gun Kelly (aka Colson Baker), Sydney Sweeney, Thomas Barbusca, Emily Arlook, Oona Laurence, and Jon Cryer.

    Before Big Time Adolescence, they worked on Netflix's Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt, where MGK played Tommy Lee and Pete played Tom Zutaut, the A&R rep who signed the band to their label, Elektra records.

    "We met each other at Wild 'N Out way back," Kelly told Billboard, "and then met each other years later when I was filming that Mötley Crüe movie, 'cause he's in that Mötley Crüe movie. And then we were just stuck down there in New Orleans, and we were both just like super stoners... listened to the same music... So that's my boy."

    They're also currently at work on an untitled Judd Apatow movie for Universal, which costars Marisa Tomei, Bill Burr, Bel Powley, Maude Apatow and Pamela Adlon, per Deadline.

    They just really like each other. So much that they invented a reason for MGK to give Pete a tattoo in Big Time Adolescence.

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

    Thankfully for Pete, he was very pleased with MGK's body art skills.

    “He actually killed it,” Pete added to The Hollywood Reporter at Sundance. “He did great work. He’s very proud of his work.”

    Get prepared to see a lot more of these two soon.
