Status Update filmed in Vancouver and area from June 13 to July 19th, 2016 and it hits theatres in the UK on February 9th, followed by a North American release that’s expected to be later this year. The story was written by Jason Filardi, who wrote 17 Again and Bringing the House Down. It centres around a teenage boy named Kyle Moore, played by Disney’s Austin & Alley star Ross Lynch.
Update: The North American premiere is happening March 30th.
Kyle deals with the typical high school and coming of age struggles until an unexpected cell phone repair shop visit changes his life forever. After having to ditch his old digs, he discovers his new phone has the ability to turn anything he posts online into a reality. Although Kyle feels like he’s on top of the world at first, it’s easy to let that kind of power go to your head.
