YouTube stars Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart, and Hannah Hart are reuniting for another film, this time with the support of a major Hollywood studio. Lionsgate has bought the rights to Dirty Thirty, a comedy about a birthday party gone awry that’ll serve as a follow-up to the trio’s 2014 hit Camp Takota. Unlike that film (their first feature-length movie), Dirty Thirty will have the resources of a traditional film — a sign that Hollywood may be grooming your teen’s favorite YouTube stars to become legit movie stars. Recently, Smosh (YouTube comedians Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox) had their first feature film, Smosh: The Movie, backed by 2oth Century Fox and Lionsgate; it later opened at No. 2 on iTunes and was acquired by Netflix. In December, YouTube personality Tyler Oakley will have his first documentary, Snervous, released in theaters and online. Dirty Thirty is expected to be released digitally next year.Watch the Holy Trinity (a fan nickname, not ours), who will each executive-produce the film, make the announcement below.
YouTube’s takin’ over.
