Dirty Thirty: Lionsgate acquires Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart, Hannah Hart comedy
Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart, and Hannah Hart are back together again.
Lionsgate has announced that it has acquired the YouTube trio’s new digital comedy Dirty Thirty, about a birthday party gone wrong. Helbig, Hart, and Hart last appeared as camp counselors in the movie Camp Takota, released in February 2014. Camp Takota was one of the first feature films to primarily star YouTube talent.
“We are beyond excited to be making another digital movie together!” Helbig, Hart, and Hart said in a statement. “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.”
“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,” Lionsgate Digital’s Jordan Gilbert said. “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.”
Andrew Bush is set to direct Dirty Thirty, with Mamrie Hart and Molly Prather writing the script. Camp Takota’s production team will also return: Michael Goldfine will produce, and Vincent Nastri and Ken Treusch will serve as executive producers.
Pre-production will begin this week, and fans can follow along with the production process at DirtyThirtyMovie.com. The film will be distributed on multiple digital platforms, including EST and SVOD.
