So much for tween-friendly fare. Awesomeness Films, which made its name as a Gen Z whisperer, announced today that its latest feature will be titled The F-ck It List.
At least, that’s the working title of the forthcoming project, which is about an exemplary high school senior named Brett Blackmore whose college acceptances from seven Ivy League schools are yanked after his senior prank goes horribly wrong. With nothing left to lose, Brett launches his so-called ‘F-ck It List’ — a compilation of all things he wished he’d done in high school but was too scared to try. And when the endeavor goes viral, he becomes a beacon of hope for his peers for living life on his own terms.
The film will star both emerging and established actors, as well as performers who hail from the digital realm — including Andrew ‘King Bach’ Bachelor, who will play a media-savvy businessman who is always on the lookout for new stars. Meanwhile, Eli Brown (Pretty Little Liars) has been cast in the lead role. He will appear alongside familiar names like Jerry O’Connell (who will play Brett’s father), Peter Facinelli (Twilight), Laura Bell Bundy (Anger Management), and Camryn Manheim (The Practice).
Rounding out the cast are Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle), Marcus Scribner (Black-ish), Karan Brar (Pacific Rim: Uprising), Tristan Lake Leabu (The Young and The Restless), and Natalie Zea (The Detour).
The Fuck It List is executive produced by Awesomeness CEO Jordan Levin and the company’s president, Brett Bouttier. Producers include Matthew Signer, Dan McDermott, and Michael Duggan — with the latter two having co-written the film. Duggan will direct.
