Shawn Mendes To Star In ‘Summer Of Love’ Musical And We Are So Ready
Imagine the outfits.
You guys, Shawn Mendes is getting ready to star in a movie which we’re all but certain will involve him wearing flares. EXCITING.
The Mercy singer just landed his first movie role in musical Summer Of Love, which will mark Shawn’s inaugural gig as an actor in a live-action film.
There’s currently very little information about the project as a whole, but according to Hollywood Reporter, Summer Of Love will be most likely be set in the summer of 1967 when as many as 100,000 hippies moved to San Francisco.
Those who gathered there believed in rejecting the conformist and materialist ways of those who lived a modern life, instead focussing on sharing and living as a community.
With the likes of The Who, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin as just a few of the bands and singers who made their names from this era, we’re expecting a whole lot of rock music in the film.
So we’re going to go ahead and assume that Shawn Mendes will be singing and acting in the flick, but as what kind of character? Will he play a musician or perhaps a young kid joining the movement?
Either way we’re excited, incase you couldn’t tell.
