Bella Thorne, Halston Sage to Star in Awesomeness Films Thriller ‘You Get Me’

Awesomeness Films’ next movie is thriller “You Get Me,” starring Bella Thorne and Halston Sage.

The film, written by Ben Epstein (MTV’s “Happyland”), will be directed by Brent Bonacorso and produced by Awesomeness Films’ Brian Robbins and Matt Kaplan. Production on the film is slated to begin in April, with shooting primarily on location in Los Angeles.

In “You Get Me,” Tyler — fresh off an argument with his perfect girlfriend, Ali (Sage) — 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 getting her new man.

“We are thrilled to be working with Bella and Halston again,” said Kaplan, president of Awesomeness Films. “They are both incredibly talented actors, and we can’t wait to bring this fresh thriller to audiences worldwide.”

Thorne (pictured above) previously starred in Disney Channel sitcom “Shake It Up.” The thesp will soon be seen in Awesomeness Films’ feature film “Shovel Buddies” (set to premiere at this year’s SXSW) and Weinstein Co.’s “Amityville: The Awakening” alongside Jennifer Jason Leigh. She also recently appeared in Lionsgate’s “The Duff” and Warner Bros.’ “Blended” with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore.

Sage will soon be seen in Awesomeness Films’ “Before I Fall,” an adaptation of the 2010 young-adult novel by Lauren Oliver. Sage recently starred in Fox’s “Paper Towns” alongside Cara Delevinge and Nat Wolff.

“You Get Me” joins Awesomeness Films’ growing roster of projects, which have been geared toward digital distribution. Those include Tyler Oakley documentary “Snervous,” which opened as the No. 1 documentary on iTunes, and last summer’s “Smosh: The Movie,” which debuted at the No. 1 comedy spot on iTunes. Last month, Awesomeness Films’ “Dance Camp” musical teen drama was one of the first original movies in the YouTube Red subscription service.

Bonacorso is represented by UTA and Underground; Epstein is represented by CAA; Sage is represented by CAA and Roar; Thorne is represented by WME and Thor Bradwell at LBI Entertainment.

Awesomeness Films is the film division of AwesomenessTV, the youth-oriented media company owned by DreamWorks Animation and Hearst.
