In the movie, Jake will portray a “small town youth rising to international fame through combat sports.”

Jake continues to make an indelible imprint on today’s youth with his exuberance and business savvy. He is the blueprint of the new breed of entrepreneur, using social media as a platform to bring his brand to global audiences,” producer David Zelon said in a statement. “Like many other superstar content creators, Jake cracked the code to attract an audience that generates hundreds of millions of dollars of revenue while also delivering his story in a way that connects directly with audiences of all ages.”

“I’m thrilled to be partnering with Mandalay Pictures and Wonder Street on my first feature film project,” Jake shared. “Both companies have proven track records of producing high-quality content that resonates with audiences, and I couldn’t be more excited to work with such talented and experienced teams. As someone who has always believed in pushing boundaries and taking risks, I can’t wait to bring this unique story and my brand to the big screen.”

Jake adds that this is “just the beginning of an exciting new chapter in my career.”

He is of course no stranger to acting, having previously starred on Disney Channel’s Bizaardvark, and roles in other projects like Dance Camp and A Genie’s Tail.
