‘Expelled’ Movie with Vine Star Cameron Dallas Coming to Netflix

Teen comedy “Expelled,” a movie starring popular Vine creator Cameron Dallas and produced by digital studio AwesomenessTV, will become available on Netflix’s streaming service worldwide Feb. 1.

In “Expelled,” Dallas — who has 6.8 million followers on Twitter’s Vine and 3.1 million on YouTube — plays Felix, a prankster who’s kicked out of Eastwood High after one stunt too many. The movie also feature a cast of YouTube and Vine creators including Andrea Russett, Lia Marie Johnson, Marcus Johns, Michelle Glavan and Teala Dunn, as well as Matt Shively (Nickelodeon’s “True Jackson, VP”).

“Expelled” is written, produced and directed by Alex Goyette. Executive producers are Brett Bouttier (“The Smosh Movie”), Joe Davola (“One Tree Hill,” “Smallville”), Scott Levine, Steven Spiegel and Alan Spiegel. AwesomenessTV CEO Brian Robbins, Shauna Phelan (“The Smosh Movie,” “Terry the Tomboy”) are producers.

After a brief theatrical release in December in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, AwesomenessTV released “Expelled” across multiple digital platforms, priced at $9.99.

AwesomenessTV pacted with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment to distribute the movie on services including Amazon Instant Video, Comcast, Google Play, Apple iTunes, Target Ticket and Vudu, while it worked with VHX to power the direct-to-consumer release on ExpelledMovie.com. “Expelled” debuted at No. 1 on iTunes and stayed in the top 10 for the next four weeks.

Also in the works from AwesomenessTV: “The Smosh Movie,” starring Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla of the popular Smosh YouTube channel, which boasts more than 30 million subscribers. Lionsgate will distribute “The Smosh Movie,” which was jointly financed by AwesomenessTV and Defy Media, a digital media company in which Lionsgate has an equity interest.

DreamWorks Animation in 2013 acquired teen-oriented AwesomenessTV, which has a big focus on YouTube, in a deal worth up to $117 million. Last December, Hearst paid $81.25 million to take a 25% stake in AwesomenessTV.
