Cody Simpson will star in a new film titled Finding Cody. The scripted, choose-your-own-adventure movie is set for release this June.
Currently in production in Los Angeles, Finding Cody is truly unprecedented – the first YouTube choose-your-own-adventure-style film starring a major musical artist. The film will feature multiple annotations allowing viewers to click and choose innumerable paths to reach the exciting conclusion, a surprise that will be every fan's dream come true.
Directed by filmmaker Michael Canzoneiero, from a script he co-wrote with Marco Ricci, Finding Cody stars Gatlin Green and Lia Marie Johnson, herself a genuine YouTube sensation with over 11 million individual video views. The film follows self-proclaimed "biggest Cody Simpson fan in the world" Lucy in her quest to see her idol performing live in concert. Though faced by an array of obstacles – the show is sold out and she's just been grounded by her mom – with the viewer's choices guiding their way, Lucy and her best friend Lily might well make their dreams come true. Oooh! Sounds like fun.
Among the certain highlights of Finding Cody will be a behind-the-scenes, all-access tour of a Cody Simpson concert. The full-length was filmed Saturday, April 28 at Anaheim's House of Blues. Finding Cody will have its world premiere this June via Warner Music Group's original YouTube Channel, "The Warner Sound," located here.
