Mike Tyson has joined the cast of Public Disturbance, a prank-comedy pic from Lionsgate toplined by the YouTube troupe the Janoskians. Also booked for the pic are Scream Queens alum Skyler Samuels — who plays a female lead — Bobby Lee, Amber Stevens West, Joey Lawrence and DJ Dillon Francis have also been added to the pic, which just started production after Lionsgate inked a movie deal with the Aussie prankster trio in 2014.
Danny Lee is directing and the screenplay was written by Dan Ahdoot, Don Deleon, Paul Davidson and Tommy Honton. Hernany Perla, Jeremy Skaller and Lee are producing with AwesomenessTV’s Brian Robbins and Jina Jones.
In the movie, the Janoskians are invited to perform a stunt at a star-studded birthday bash for Alison, the daughter of a famous media mogul (Tyson). When their act gets cancelled at the last minute, the pranksters plan the ultimate heist to hijack the dull party and create the largest public disturbance of their lives.
Tyson is repped by ICM Partners.
