Lionsgate Partners with Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart and Hannah Hart on Their New Film, Dirty Thirty
If you’re on the internet ever, you’ve likely watched YouTube videos from either Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart, or Hannah Hart – or videos with all three of them, as they collaborate often. You may have even seen their film, Camp Takota, which was one of the first films to star YouTube talent. Now, Lionsgate is jumping all up on their bandwagon, having bought their latest film, Dirty Thirty.
According to Variety, the film is about “a birthday party that goes off the rails.” Jordan Gilbert, Director of Digital Programming at Lionsgate, seems thrilled to partner with a trio of badass ladies who clearly know what they’re doing:
As we build out our original digital offerings, we continue to look for projects that fit Lionsgate’s brand as a leader in supplying the next generation of global content and Dirty Thirty perfectly fits that mandate. Grace, Mamrie, Hannah and the entire team have proven that they understand the digital audience and we are excited to be working with them on this long-form digital feature.
Meanwhile, the ladies are thrilled to have a partner in Lionsgate:
We wanted to expand off the success of Camp Takota by bringing in a major studio. Lionsgate is a perfect partner because they are a big player, but they’re a young studio who will support our creative vision and take chances. Plus, they approved our snacks budget.
Mamrie Hart will be writing the script along with Molly Prather (yay, lady writers!), and the film will be directed by Andrew Bush (Roller Town). Helbig, Hart, and Hart (that would be the best law firm EVER) will Executive Produce along with Ken Treusch, Vincent Nastri, and IMG Films. Michael Goldfine (#O2LForever and The Outfield) will produce Dirty Thirty under his Michael Goldfine Productions banner.
What do you think? Will you be keeping your eyes peeled for Dirty Thirty?
