Vine star Cameron Dallas gets himself ‘Expelled’ in feature film debut
Dallas channels Ferris Bueller in modern school comedy.
If six-second snippets aren’t enough, Vine star Cameron Dallas is now coming to a theater near you with a full-length feature film.
AwesomenessTV announced today the release of Expelled, the story of a teenage prankster who finally goes too far and gets himself expelled from school. He then spends the film in a madcap, Ferris Bueller-type adventure to keep his parents from knowing his fate. The film will also star fellow YouTube and Vine celebs like Lia Marie Johnson, Marcus Johns, Teala Dunn, and Andrea Russett. The film premieres in limited release Dec. 12, with download and streaming options rolling out starting Dec. 16.
“The movie industry is changing in terms of not only who teens want to see on screen, but also how, when and where they want to watch,” said Brian Robbins, Expelled producer and founder of AwesomenessTV, in a press release. “Expelled gives fans of this new generation of stars a chance to see them on the big screen… or whatever screen they prefer.”
Dallas boasts 6.1 million followers on Vine, as well as impressive social presences on Twitter, YouTube, and other platforms. His celebrity is not without controversy, however. Last year the teen took heat for a video in which he and two other teen celebs talked about beauty expectations of their female fans. Dallas has continued to thrive despite the backlash, though, and the film is already getting rave reactions from his fanbase, although they’re particularly focused on the moment when Johnson and Dallas kiss in the trailer.
