Scott Speer is set to direct the flick about a teenager (Lynch) who, after being uprooted by his parents’ separation and forced to move, stumbles upon a magical app that causes his social media updates to come true.
After becoming the hero of his new high school, his newfound power starts to cause all sorts of problem, sending him crashing back down to earth.
Olivia Holt will also star in the movie, which will begin production in June in Vancouver.
“Prince was and will always be a very big inspiration to us as a band. His lyrics, the melodies, the guitar solos, the groove, the vibe, the music – - such an insane amount of talent. I think Justin Timberlake said it best, ‘not a ‘once in a lifetime’ kind of artist, more like ‘once in forever’,” the band wrote in the notes section.
R5 added, “We have played this song on tour quite a bit and it always brings so much energy to the show. There is nothing quite like a Prince song, and “Let’s Go Crazy” has always been one of our favorites and we thought we’d share it with you all, in memory of one of our favorite artists, Prince.”
And about that pic of Ross with a bloody nose? He’s fine.
