In the upcoming movie, 15-year-old Carmen Coleman (Martin) discovers she can control her professional football player dad’s prowess on the field through her video game.

Marsai‘s Genius Entertainment banner will team up with LeBron James‘ The SpringHill Company, as well as Nickelodeon and Awesomeness Films, with a debut set for Paramount+. Production will begin in early 2022.

In addition, Nickelodeon and Awesomeness Films has also picked up the first ever film adaptation of Hush Hush, based on the NYT best-selling novels by Becca Fitzpatrick.

Hush Hush follows 16-year-old high school student Nora Grey, who befriends new student, Patch, and finds herself drawn to his brooding charm against her better judgment. As Nora starts seeking answers about who Patch really is, she unwittingly gets caught in the crosshairs of an ancient battle between fallen angels and the immortal — a struggle that comes to threaten her life and reveals a shocking secret about her own identity.

The film adaptation will also premiere on Paramount+ as part of Nickelodeon and Awesomeness’ live-action film studio.

If you missed it, Marsai also has the PAW Patrol movie coming soon (watch the trailer here!) and she’s also working on a new bedroom renovation series!
