If you have kids, there is a decent chance you’ve heard of Jojo Siwa. The now 17-year-old YouTube personality first hit the scene on the reality show ‘Dance Moms‘
After appearing on two seasons of the show, Siwa went her own way and became extremely popular. She has over 11 million subscribers on YouTube and has a net worth of over $12 million.
And her bank account is going to get even bigger, thanks to Paramount Pictures and Will Smith. It was revealed this week that she will star in the movie adaptation of the book, Bounce.
Based on the book by Megan Shull, ‘Bounce’ is a heartwarming story about a teenage girl who wishes she could trade her family for a new one on Christmas Eve. Her wish is granted and she finds herself ‘bouncing’ into the lives of other girls and living Christmas Day on repeat — learning the value of family, finding your voice and the power of love.
Will Smith and James Lassiter will produce through their Overbrook Entertainment banner.
It’s a smart decision hiring someone like Siwa, who already has such a loyal following. They will no doubt watch anything she’s in.
No word on a potential release date, but we’ll keep you posted.
