You Had Me At ‘You Get Me’

OK, not quite that.

Actually, you had me at ‘and Kathryn Morris’.

I know next to nothing about this beyond what you see below.  The website Rama’s Screen has posted a press release it received for a new movie thriller called You Get Me.  It stars Bella Thorne (Shake It Up!), Halston Sage (Crisis), and Kathryn apparently.

There is no description of Kathryn’s role so we’ll just have to wait for more news.

It is exciting to think that Kathryn will be heading back to the big screen again.

LOS ANGELES (April 21, 2016) – Awesomeness Films announced that it began production on YOU GET ME this week in Los Angeles. Joining previously announced stars Bella Thorne and Halston Sage are: Taylor John Smith (AMERICAN CRIME) as Tyler, Anna Akana (ANT-MAN) as Lydia, and Nash Grier (THE OUTFIELD) as Gil.  Also, rounding out the cast are: Garcelle Beauvais (WHITE HOUSE DOWN; FLIGHT), Jennifer Esposito (THE AFFAIR; CRASH), and Kathryn Morris (COLD CASE; MINORITY REPORT). This star powered film has a combined social reach of over 52 million and is produced by Awesomeness Films’ Brian Robbins and Matt Kaplan, alongside Nicki Cortese. The script was written by Ben Epstein (HAPPYLAND) and is the feature debut for director Brent Bonacorso.

Production wraps in May, at which time Good Universe will handle international sales at Cannes Film Festival.

“We’re excited about the dynamic cast for YOU GET ME and know their talent coupled with Brent Bonacorso’s stylized vision will create the kind of psychological thriller that will resonate with this generation,” said Matt Kaplan, President of Awesomeness Films.

After an argument with his perfect girlfriend Alison (Halston Sage), Tyler (Taylor John Smith) has a one-night stand with sexy out-of-towner Holly (Bella Thorne). The morning after, Alison agrees to take him back but Holly is now a student at their school who refuses to allow their “romance” to end, resulting in a dangerous obsession with him.

Smith is represented by CAA and Cohen Entertainment; Akana is represented by UTA and The Coronel Group; Grier is represented by Legacy Talent and Entertainment; Beauvais is represented by Stone Manners Salners Agency and Gilbertson Entertainment; Esposito is represented by CAA and GSA Entertainment; Morris is represented by Gersh and Atlas Artists.
