Awesomeness Films is ramping up its next project, and reteaming with Bella Thorne and Halston Sage to do it. The pair have signed on to star in You Get Me, a thriller being directed by The Jinx‘s Brent Bonacorso. Ben Epstein wrote the script. Production is set to begin next month primarily on location in Los Angeles.
The pic centers on Tyler, fresh out of an argument with his perfect girlfriend Ali (Sage), who 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 her new man.
“We are thrilled to be working with Bella and Halston again. They are both incredibly talented actors and we can’t wait to bring this fresh thriller to audiences worldwide,” said Matt Kaplan, President of Awesomeness Films, the film arm of the DreamWorks Animation-Hearst multiplatform unit AwesomenessTV.
Thorne starred in Awesomeness Films’ Shovel Bodies which has its world premiere at SXSW next week. She’s also co-starring in The Weinstein Company’s Amityville: The Awakening which will bow next January. She is represented by WME and LBI Entertainment.
Sage, whose credits include the upcoming Neighbors 2, Fox’s Paper Towns with Cara Delevinge and Nat Wolff, is in Awesomeness Films’ Before I Fall, the pic based on Lauren Oliver’s bestselling novel that stars Zoey Deutch. Sage is repped by CAA and ROAR.
Bonacorso is repped by UTA and Underground, and Epstein by CAA and Think Tank Management.

On November 2nd, MoviePilot.com posted that Halston Sage has been cast as Catwoman in the new Batman reboot set to come out in November 2018 starring & directed by Ben Affleck. The article has no source and is the only one reporting so for now, we’ll just call this news a rumour for now.
If you’re interested in reading the article from MoviePilot here it is:
Halston Sage (Grown Ups 2, Goosebumps, Scouts V. Zombies) has recently been cast in the upcoming 2018 Batman reboot movie, Batman, starring Ben Affleck, Jared Leto, and Jeremy Irons, as Selena Kyle aka Catwoman. She will make one hot A of an attractive Catwoman unlike Anne Hathaway whose role of Catwoman flopped in The Dark Knight Rises due to lack of character based attractiveness, somehow.
Watch Sage seduce Ben Affleck’s Batman as Catwoman in Batman, in theaters November 2018.
We’re excited for Halston if this rumour is true and we’ll keep you up to date on this subject!

In the horror comedy Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, out October 30, Halston Sage plays Kendall, a popular girl with a heart of gold who is described as having “clearly won the genetic lottery.” It’s a glib assessment that Sage, 22, has had to fight since she came to attention in 2014’s hit comedy Neighbors, in no small part due to an onscreen snog with costar Rose Byrne. The scene earned Sage an MTV Movie Award nomination for Best Kiss. “I’m proud of that!” Sage, who grew up in Los Angeles, says with a disarmingly nerdy chortle. “Getting to kiss Rose was a privilege. I still have a crush on her.”
Sage has been working to add substance to her bombshell roles—a struggle she has in common with Lacey Pemberton, the character she plays in the recent young-adult drama Paper Towns. Lacey, the not-so-clueless BFF of Cara Delevingne’s Margo, can’t seem to shed her ditzy reputation, despite the fact that she’s bound for the Ivy League. Sage’s surprisingly layered performance will no doubt lead to meatier roles for the actress, but for now she is donning the scream-queen crown, starring alongside Jack Black in an upcoming film adaptation of the YA Goosebumps horror books. “I’m ready to walk the streets like in Pretty Woman or get locked up in the loony bin Girl, Interrupted-style,” she insists. “I just have to be patient.”
