Bella Thorne, Halston Sage to Star in 'You Get Me' From Awesomeness Films
The thriller will be directed by Brent Bonacorso.
Awesomeness Films has lined up its next film just days before it premieres Shovel Buddies at SXSW.
The production company, a division of DreamWorks Animation-owned AwesomenessTV, has started production on horror film You Get Me from writer Ben Epstein (Happyland). The project is being directed by Brent Bonacorso, who is behind the opening titles for HBO's The Jinx.
Bella Thorne and Halston Sage have signed on to the thriller, which will begin filming in Los Angeles in April.
You Get Me centers on Tyler, who gets into a fight with his perfect girlfriend, Ali (Sage), and falls into the arms of sexy out-of-towner Grace (Thorne). The next morning, Ali agrees to take him back but he discovers that Grace is a new student at their school and is set on keeping her new man.
Both Thorne and Sage have worked with Awesomeness Films before. Thorne, who will star in The Weinstein Co.'s Amityville: The Awakening, will be seen in Awesomeness' Shovel Buddies, which premieres on Monday, March 14, in Austin. Sage will be in the upcoming Awesomeness project Before I Fall, based on the YA novel by Lauren Oliver.
You Get Me joins a growing number of films from Awesomeness, including 2015 releases Snervous, a documentary about Tyler Oakley, and Smosh: The Movie.
Bonacorso is represented by UTA and Underground; Epstein is with CAA; Sage is repped by CAA and ROAR; Thorne is repped by WME and Thor Bradwell at LBI Entertainment.
