Awesomeness Films Greenlights ‘Honor Society’ Starring Angourie Rice, Gaten Matarazzo And Christopher Mintz-Plasse

Production has begun on Honor Society, a live-action comedy from Awesomeness Films. Angourie Rice (Mare of Easttown, Spider-Man: No Way Home) has top billing as the titular character Honor, with Gaten Matarazzo (Stranger Things, Prank Encounters) and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Super Bad, Kick-Ass) also leading.
