Bella Thorne (Assassination Nation) has signed on to star in writer/director Joshua Caldwell’s (Layover) Southland.
Living in a small Florida town and working at a diner was never Arielle’s (Thorne) dream life. She’s always wanted more. Fame. Popularity. Admiration. When she falls for a recently paroled young criminal named Dean, she drags him back into a life of danger, learning that posting their criminal exploits on social media is an easy way to viral fame.
Obsessed with their rising number of followers, they embark on a dangerous adventure together that leads to robbery, cop chases and even murder. Heading to Hollywood, the City of Stars, they will realize what it takes to become famous and have to decide if this dangerous lifestyle is really worth it.
Thorne is an actress and singer, known for roles in The Duff, Famous in Love and Midnight Sun. Most recently, she starred in Assassination Nation, alongside Maude Apatow, Suki Waterhouse, and Joel McHale.
