Awesomeness Films is ramping up its next project, and reteaming with Bella Thorne and Halston Sage to do it. The pair have signed on to star in You Get Me, a thriller being directed by The Jinx‘s Brent Bonacorso. Ben Epstein wrote the script. Production is set to begin next month primarily on location in Los Angeles.
The pic centers on Tyler, fresh out of an argument with his perfect girlfriend Ali (Sage), who 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 Matt Kaplan, President of Awesomeness Films, the film arm of the DreamWorks Animation-Hearst multiplatform unit AwesomenessTV.
Thorne starred in Awesomeness Films’ Shovel Bodies which has its world premiere at SXSW next week. She’s also co-starring in The Weinstein Company’s Amityville: The Awakening which will bow next January. She is represented by WME and LBI Entertainment.
Sage, whose credits include the upcoming Neighbors 2, Fox’s Paper Towns with Cara Delevinge and Nat Wolff, is in Awesomeness Films’ Before I Fall, the pic based on Lauren Oliver’s bestselling novel that stars Zoey Deutch. Sage is repped by CAA and ROAR.
Bonacorso is repped by UTA and Underground, and Epstein by CAA and Think Tank Management.
