‘You Get Me’ To Be Gettable In June

you_get_me_poster_002Awesomeness Films, the production company behind the thriller teen drama You Get Me, has announced a movie deal with the subscription streaming service Netflix.

Not to blow our own trumpet too much but back in February here on KM UK we noted that the Bella Thorne-starrer was headed in that direction.

The only logical conclusion to draw from that piece of information was that it was likely to be released exclusively on the online only network.  Why else would Netflix put its name to it?

Now the deal has been confirmed we can finally put an actual date on when the film will be available to all subscribers:  16th June 2017.

What we still don’t know at this point is the part Kathryn plays in this Fatal Attraction-style drama based amongst high-school students.  Or, for that matter the other adult character played by recent NCIS addition Jennifer Esposito.

Hopefully we’ll know more soon as the mid-June release date approaches.

KM In You Get Me On IMDb & Netflix Pickup

imdb_logo_100x100It’s a little thing but it makes a big difference.

Nearly a year ago, almost in passing, it was announced that Kathryn was due to have a role in the upcoming teen-thriller You Get Me.  It’s a vehicle for young stars Bella Thorne (Shake It Up!), Halston Sage (Bad Neighbours), and Nash Grier (The Deleted).  The plot sounds a bit Fatal Attraction, set in high school.

Kathryn’s name was dropped into reports of the cast expanding alongside the recent NCIS addition Jennifer Esposito.  Subsequent reports didn’t mention Kathryn and it felt increasingly likely that her part had suffered at the hands of the editing process, never to see the light of day.

Now we have the small but important piece of evidence that we may yet see what ever character Kathryn is playing in this movie (at the time of writing we don’t yet have a character name or any description of the role).  Kathryn has been added to the listed cast of You Get Me on the Internet Movie Database website (IMDb).  It may not seem much but it carries some weight.  The film’s page is HERE.

The other piece of news evident from the information on the IMDb page is that You Get Me is now a Netflix movie, suggesting the film will be released exclusively on the streaming platform.  Still no signs of a release date though.

You Get Me. But When?

you_get_me_poster_001There has not been much to say about the upcoming thriller teen drama You Get Me for months.

Considering the likes of stars du jour Bella Thorne (Shake It Up!) and Nash Grier, as well as TV series stalwart and new NCIS team member Jennifer Esposito (Spin City), are in it you would think it worthy of more hype.  The film was announced back in March and Kathryn’s involvement in April.  Since then there’s been almost nothing.  We don’t know details of Kathryn’s role or if she really is starring at all.  Some confirmation would be nice.

A couple of weeks ago a poster and some photos from the film appeared on IMDb.  Since then they have been removed.  The poster, as it was, took a couple of images from the film and gave it the ‘Coming Soon’ treatment.  An exact release date had not been specified but 2016 appears now to have slipped into 2017.  Kathryn was not in any of the pictures nor is she amongst the cast listed on the poster.

A copy of the poster (right) can found in the KM UK Gallery here.

I guess we’ll be waiting a little longer then.  You get me?

You Get Me In Cannes… Sort Of

And probably not yet ‘in the can’ either.

Starting today (11th May) on the south coast of France is the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.  The 69th in its history no less.

Awesomeness Films, the production company behind the upcoming teen drama You Get Me starring Bella Thorne (Blended), will be in the French resort to promote some of its offerings to distributors.  Cannes is more of a trade show than a film festival.

You Get Me is, as far as we know, still being filmed so discussion of the movie at the event will be as much about gauging reaction to the genre as generating sales.  If regional distributors feel they can attract local audiences with certain types of films it will guide company’s future projects.

We don’t know much about You Get Me so far beyond the principal cast, some plot elements, and that Kathryn has been mentioned as being in it.  No specifics yet.  You can see what have so far in the previous post HERE.

No release date has been… released… but this year seems likely.

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.
