Famous TikToker Hannah Stocking is officially confirmed to be joining the cast of the upcoming horror film “Skill House” for Ryan Kavanaugh’s Proxima Media starring opposite rapper/actor Curtis James Jackson III widely known as 50 Cent.
Hannah Stocking is a super-talented actress, creator, and host who rose to fame in the world of digital media, and her popularity gradually spread across traditional media, and she eventually gained recognition for unique short comedy videos with a mixture of science that she posts on her various social media platforms. Stocking boasts over 22 million followers on Instagram, 26 million followers on TikTok, and 8 million subscribers on YouTube.
“Just as this film is the first of a new genre of horror, social media personalities like Bryce and Hannah are a new genre of celebrity,” Stolberg explained in an interview to TheWrap. “We are breaking creative boundaries and career boundaries here. Hannah has dynamic talent and encompasses everything this project is about – internet fame and the evolution of the entertainment industry. We are thrilled to have her joining our cast.”
Stocking will be joining alongside several other cast members including another popular TikToker Bryce Hall, MMA player Paige VanZant, and Neal McDonough. The movie is being helmed by Josh Stolberg, who also penned the script.
According to The Wrap, “Skill House is being described as a Saw-like take that breaks into the phenomenon of social media fame and culture, offers an unflinching depiction of “clout” and explores the new phenomenon of “influencers”, their fame and what they are willing to do to attain it.”
The upcoming horror movie is the first project that is being listed on the site of Ryan Kavanaugh’s Entertainment Stock Exchange. The Entertainment Stock Exchange is “designed to allow users to invest in film projects and trade in and out of a film’s potential upside.”
Kavanaugh shared his thoughts when he learned 50 cents had joined the cast.
“This film is bursting with mavericks of entertainment, many of them spanning multiple genres and platforms. From a global rap and hip-hop music icon to a businessman, actor, writer, and producer – if anyone knows a thing or two about breaking the boundaries, it’s 50 Cent. I’m honored to work alongside him as we watch Bryce do the same with his career.”
The project is being funded and overseen by Proxima Media. 50 Cent will also serve as a producer on behalf of his G-Unit Film & Television company along with Kavanaugh, Alex Baskin, Amy Kim, and Jamie Burke on behalf of Lifeboat Productions.
