Bella Thorne is in talks to star in the Vineet Dewan-directed coming-of-age movie BE HERE NOW. Formerly known as X.O., the movie follows a photo blogger trying to get backstage access at a music festival, the intersecting lives of the young people around her, and the trials and tribulations of love.
Be Here Now is a Voltage Pictures and The Audience title and was co-written by Dewan and Samantha Taylor Pickett. Pickett will also produce with Brian Levy, Dominic Rustam, and Zev Foreman of Voltage. Rami Perlman, Stephen Curtis, Oliver Luckett and Voltage’s Nicolas Chartier will serve as executive producers for the movie.
Thorne recently starred in Awesome Films’ Shovel Buddies which made its premiere at this year’s SXSW Film Festival. The former Disney sensation went on to star in films like The Duff and Blended with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. She can be seen in the upcoming Tyler Perry film, Boo! A Madea Halloween as well as Amityville: The Awakening with Jennifer Jason Leigh. She recently signed on to star in another Awesome Films project titled You Get Me.
She is repped by WME.
