Two of your fave Disney Channel cuties and one of your fave web stars are all working on a new project together! Yep, that's right. Garrett Clayton and Joey Bragg, along with Jordan Doww are starring alongside each other in the upcoming film Reach. The high school drama, which will begin filming in Los Angeles this month, will deal with important topics that teens deal with IRL like bullying and the importance of true friendship.
The film follows the story of Garrett's character, who makes it known to a pro-suicide support group that he intends on killing himself. His character comes from a really tough background, as he has been constantly picked on by the school bully (played by Jordan). In addition to suffering in school, he also has issues at home. His mother passed away, which resulted in having serious issues with his father. However, things begin to turn around when Garrett's character makes friends with a new quirky kid who diverts his attention from the pain he's experiencing.
The cast took to social media to announce their upcoming roles and share their excitement with fans.
"So grateful to be a part of this awesome cast and crew!" Garrett tweeted in response to the news, giving a shoutout to his future co-stars.
Joey also took to Twitter, and he even cleared up a false rumor that claimed he plays the quirky character previously mentioned.
"I don't play that character but WHATEVS! Super excited," his message read.
Jordan took to Twitter to express how honored he is to join the Disney Channel guys – so sweet!
"So excited to star @reachthemovie with @garrettclayton & @JoeyBragg. U know you guys will love the story as much as I do," he said.
Also starring in the movie are Bojesse Christopher, Kevin Sizemore, Raffaela Capp, Concetta Tomei, Steven Thomas Capp, Brent Tarnol, Natasha Capp, Michelle Danner, and Chelsea Cook.
