The Fine Brothers are making a movie.
The brotherly duo, behind the self-titled YouTube channel with more than 10.7 million subscribers (and more than 13.8 million subscribers across three channels), are teaming with Big Block Entertainment Group to produce a feature-length teen comedy film. The untitled project will provide their own spin on the clique-filled world of high school.
Benny and Rafi Fine will write, direct and produce the film. Big Block Entertainment’s Tom Pellegrini (“Jiro Dreams of Sushi”) and Scott Prisand (“Rock of Ages”) will produce, with the studio’s founder Scott Benson executive producing. Max Benator, who manages the creators, is also on board as executive producer.
This is the latest off-YouTube project for The Fine Brothers. The duo are also working on a TV series for Nickelodeon based on their popular “React” franchise. Titled “React to That,” the series was given a 13-episode order by the kids’ network in April.
It’s also not the first film project for The Fine Brothers. The duo are also working on a separate film that is financed by Fullscreen.
According to Variety, this particular project will go the “Camp Takota” route — Big Block and The Fine Brothers will look to distribute it on digital platforms.
The Fines, as well as Big Block Entertainment, are repped by WME.
