Shawn Mendes has been riding high for the past two years, moving from Vine star to full-fledged Hot 100 artist. However, the 18-year-old is expanding his horizons and making his big-screen debut in an upcoming film!
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Mendes is set to star in Ivan Reitman’s musical Summer of Love.
While little is known about the project currently, it’s being described as a road-trip movie and will likely focus on the famous summer in 1967 where thousands of young hippies protested the Vietnam War in San Francisco.
Though Mendes has already done some film work, voicing a character in the animated 2013 film Underdogs, this will be his first live-action feature.
We can’t wait to hear more about the film as it moves further into production!
