With pandemonium and fanfare growing exponentially worldwide, The Janoskians have just joined forces with Lionsgate for the development and future release of a feature length film based on their one-of-a-kind brand of “social disturbance comedy”.
The film, helmed by Danny Lee [Road to Brooklyn, Detroit Rubber] and penned by comedian Dan Ahdoot [Super Fun Night, Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell, Kickin’ It], will encompass a partially-scripted comedy packed with stunts, public pranks, wish-fulfillment and hilarity as we follow the Janoskians adjusting to life in Los Angeles and vowing to throw the most epic party of all time.
The pop punk mischief makers’ manager Jeremy Skaller and Awesomeness TV/Varsity Pictures’ Brian Robbins [Smallville, One Tree Hill, Varsity Blues] serve as producers. The big screen might never be the same after The Janoskians are done.
Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-President Erik Feig comments, “Since they refused to allow us to become members of their group, we have no choice but to help them make a movie. We are thrilled to be working with The Janoskians, Danny Lee, Jeremy Skaller, and Brian Robbins and exploring new frontiers along the way!”
Robbins adds, “After their fans shut down Times Square, I have faith that The Janoskians can conquer any world they set their sights on. We have watched them become masters of the short form and are excited to be producing their feature film bow.”
Meanwhile, Beau Brooks of The Janoskians had this to say, “In our wildest dreams we never thought we would end up working with a company like LIONSGATE®. They take risks, break rules, and make epic movies. We can’t wait to take our pranks and jokes to the next level. We know we are lucky, and we will make the most of it, we promise you!”
Recently, the boys unleashed their first song for Republic Records, “Real Girls Eat Cake”. Available now at itunes and via all digital retailers, the song marries surf-style guitar and a ska bounce before colliding into a 90’s-influenced anthem.
For the unfamiliar, in 2011, Janoskians mayhem started brewing when the group uploaded their first “Awkward Train Situations” video to YouTube. As the fan base grew, they continually released hilarious and disruptive content, gaining over 2 million YouTube subscribers as well as accruing more than 200 million combined views.
Their inaugural “#NotaBoyBand” tour boasted a “Variety Show”-style set that engaged audiences in a revolutionary fashion through manipulating social media. A meet and greet in London’s Hyde Park drew a mob of approximately ten thousand fans, forcing the boys to evacuate. They later shut down the world renowned Beverly Center in L.A. as thousands of girls flooded the mall. Meanwhile, an appearance in Times Square in February 2014 drew 20,000 fans and major record label attention from Republic Records, who signed them shortly after.
