Awsesomeness Films' You Get Me has found its leading man. 

Taylor John Smith (American Crime) has been cast in the thriller alongside previously announced stars Bella Thorne and Halston Sage. The actor, who was recently cast in Ryan Phillippe's role in the pilot for NBC's Cruel Intentions reboot, will play Tyler, whose one-night stand with a sexy out-of-towner (Thorne) after breaking up with his girlfriend (Sage) turns dangerous. The actor is repped by CAA and Cohen Entertainment.

You Get Me was penned by Ben Epstein (Happyland) and is being directed by newcomer Brent Bonacorso. AwesomenessTV CEO Brian Robbins is producing alongside Awesomeness Films president Matt Kaplan.

"We're excited about the dynamic cast for You Get Me and know their talent coupled with Brent Bonacorso's stylized vision will create the kind of psychological thriller that will resonate with this generation," said Kaplan. 

DreamWorks Animation-owned Awesomeness has started production on the film and is expected to wrap in May. Good Universe is handling international sales at the Cannes Film Festival. 

Akana is repped by UTA and The Coronel Group; Grier is with Legacy Talent and Entertainment; Beauvais is handled by Stone Manners Salners Agency and Gilbertson Entertainment; Esposito is with CAA and GSA Entertainment; and Morris is repped by Gersh and Atlas Artists.
