Paris Berelc To Star In Video Game Movie '1UP' With Ellen Page

Paris Berelc is heading into the world of eSports for new movie 1UP!

The 21-year-old actress will star as a college female gamer, with Ellen Page as her coach, THR reports.

Here’s a synopsis: A female gamer named Vivian Lee quits her college eSports team rather than put up with sexism from her male counterparts. But with her scholarship on the line, she is forced to assemble a Varsity caliber, all-women’s team that can compete with the boys.

With the help of an enigmatic coach who returns to the spotlight after her own GamerGate scandal, the young woman recruits an unlikely crew of unskilled misfits to kick some serious gamer butt.

1UP is the first feature film from Buzzfeed Studios and will be directed by Kyle Newman, with a script by Julia Yorks. Filming is set to begin in Toronto in November!
