YouTube, AwesomenessTV ‘We Love You’ Movie to Star FouseyTube, Lele Pons

Film is third project from AwesomenessTV for YouTube Red subscription service

Romantic comedy “We Love You” from YouTube and Awesomeness Films will star Yousef Saleh Erakat (aka FouseyTube), popular Viner Lele Pons and actor Justin Dobies (“Dear White People”).

The movie is the third project from AwesomenessTV for YouTube Red, the $10-per-month ad-free video and music subscription service. Musical teen drama “Dance Camp” debuted last month, and the series “Foursome,” starring Jenn McAllister (JennxPenn), Logan Paul and Rickey Thompson, is slated to premiere March 30.

In “We Love You,” best friends Ford (Erakat) and Noah (Dobies) both fall for Callie (Pons), potentially spelling the end of their friendship. But then the besties come up with the idea that Callie just might be cool enough to date both of them at the same time.

Production on the movie began last week on location in South Carolina. The cast includes digital stars Ray William Johnson (of YouTube series “Equals Three”) and Lauren Elizabeth Luthringshausen, along with Joe Hursley and Londale Theus Jr.

“‘We Love You’ is a contemporary love story with a comedic twist,” said Matt Kaplan, president of Awesomeness Films. “It is the kind of film, supported by a cast of talented actors, that we know our audience loves.”

Susanne Daniels, YouTube’s global head of original content, added, “In less than a year, Awesomeness Films has established itself as a leader in creating films audiences love, and we’re excited to partner with them again on their next film.”

“We Love You” is directed by Huck Botko and produced by Jon Shestack.

Erakat is repped by CAA; Pons is represented by UTA and 3 Arts; Dobies is represented by Paradigm and Inphenate; Luthringshausen is represented by Big Frame, UTA and Hansen Jacobson; Botko is represented by Paradigm and Hansen Jacobson; Johnson is represented by Gersh; Hursley is represented by Gersh and Avalon; and Theus is represented by CAA and 3 Arts.

YouTube Red is currently available only in the U.S., and YouTube plans to roll it out internationally throughout 2016.
