Part of the famed Blacklist — awesome screenplays that just can’t get produced in Hollywood — Shovel Buddies is the story of four teens who unite to complete a friend’s “shovel list” after he dies of leukemia (I guess shovel because “Bucket List” was already taken?). Or maybe shovel lists are for other people while bucket lists are a personal endeavor?
While there isn’t a cast list yet, you’ve gotta believe most of the AwesomenessTV roster is in contention for parts and possibly a few Big Frame folk as well.
The deal came together when Hollywood production company Film 360 brought the film idea to Big Frame for casting consideration and Big Frame spun around and said, “Hey, AwesomenessTV who is also owned by Dreamworks! Get in on this.”
Written by Jason Hellerman and directed by British commercial directing team Si & Ad, the film will likely be out sometime next year.
