Awesomeness Films and YouTube have commenced production in South Carolina on their latest film collaboration We Love You, directed by Huck Botko. The comedy features digital and social media talent with YouTuber Yousef Erakat, Viner Lele Pons and actor Justin Dobies (Dear White People) starring. It follows best friends Noah (Dobies) and Ford (Erakat), who both fall the same girl, Callie (Pons). As their friendship is threatened, the guys come up with the idea that may resolve their dilemma and embark on an experiment that will challenge everything they think they know about dating.
We Love You is the third outing from the subscription-based service and YA-centric Awesomeness Films, following Dance Camp, which debuted last month, and the series Foursome which premieres March 30. The DreamWorks-owned media company premiered Shovel Buddies at this year’s SXSW. The film stars Bella Thorne and Kian Lawley and is based on the 2013 Black List screenplay by Jason Kellerman.
YouTube staples Ray William Johnson, Lauren Elizabeth Luthringshausen, Joe Hursley, and Londale Theus Jr. co-star in We Love You. Alan Yang scripted the digital pic with Jon Shestack producing.
