Rising starlets Bella Thorne and Halston Sage are set to star in Awesomeness Films next feature “You Get Me,” the company announced Thursday.
Brent Bonacorso (“The Jinx”) will direct from a script by Ben Epstein (“Happyland”), while Brian Robbins and Matt Kaplan will produce for Awesomeness Films. Production will begin in April and the film will be shot primarily on location in Los Angeles.
Fresh out of an argument with his perfect girlfriend Ali (Sage), Tyler lands in the arms of sexy out-of-towner Grace (Thorne). The morning after, he finds that not only does Ali agree to take him back, but Grace is a new student at their school and is dead set on her new man.
“We are thrilled to be working with Bella and Halston again. They are both incredibly talented actors and we can’t wait to bring this fresh thriller to audiences worldwide,” said Kaplan, president of Awesomeness Films.
The film marks a reunion of sorts, as Sage next stars in the Awesomeness feature “Before I Fall,” while Thorne stars in the company’s “Shovel Buddies,” which debuts as SXSW next week.
Thorne recently starred in “The DUFF” and “Blended,” and she’ll soon be seen alongside Jennifer Jason Leigh in “Amityville: The Awakening,” which the Weinstein Company just moved to January 2017.
Sage recently starred alongside Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne in Fox’s “Paper Towns,” and also co-starred in Sony’s “Goosebumps” and Paramount’s “Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse.”
“You Get Me” follows a string of successful moves from Awesomeness Films, including “Snervous Tyler Oakley,” which opened as the top documentary on iTunes, and “Smosh: The Movie,” which opened as the top comedy on iTunes.
Thorne is represented by WME and Thor Bradwell at LBI Entertainment. Sage is repped by ROAR and CAA, which also reps Epstein. Bonacorso is repped by UTA and Underground.
