Dance Moms and YouTube personality Jojo Siwa has landed her first major acting role in Will Smith’s Bounce.
The film is based on the book by Megan Shull and it tells the story of a teenage girl who wants to trade her family for a new one on Christmas Eve. Her wish becomes a reality and she soon starts reliving Christmas Day over and over again by “bouncing” in the lives of other girls. Through her journey, she learns the importance of family, her inner voice, and love.
Will Smith and James Lassiter will produce with Paramount Pictures.
Jojo’s big break was in Abby Lee’s Dance Moms and she went on to become a singer with her debut single, “Boomerang.” The only film she’s had a role in was The Angry Birds Movie 2.
