Joel Courtney From 'The Kissing Booth' Is About To Star In The SCARIEST Thriller Of The Year

From Pop Buzz

Right now we are in the process of campaigning for a sequel or maybe even a TV series to accompany the movie but, while we wait to see if that happens, it's probably worth noting that the incredible The Kissing Booth cast all have projects for us to look forward to in the mean time. Joey King (Elle) is about to play one of the leads in Slender Man, Jacob Elordi is going to star in The Mortuary Collectionand now Joel Courtney is about to give us life in Replicate.

As it stands, not too much is known about Replicate but from what we can tell it is going to be nothing short of amazing. It's a sci-fi thriller that tells the story of three friends making a web-series about their town together. So far so normal. However, in the process, they find out that citizens of the town are being murdered and exchanged with creatures who are exact 'replicates' of them. Terrifying.

Joel will play Zach, one of the lead characters in the new feature film, alongside Andi Matichak (Halloween) as Kayla and Calum Worthy (American Vandal) as Randy. Not to mention, the one and only Cam Gigandet (Twilight, The OC, Burlesque) will also star in the film as Josh Haywood. Not too much is known about any of their characters as it stands, but we cannot wait to find out what they're like.


In spite of his young age, Joel has been acting professionally since 2011. The 22 year old got his big break as a movie star with Elle Fanning in the critically acclaimed Steven Spielberg directed horror film Super 8. Since then he has also had major roles in films like Mercy,Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn and F The Prom. Nevertheless, it was this year with The Kissing Booth that he rose to mainstream attention.

Considering how talented he is, we are super excited to see his performance in Replicate. Currently the film has no official release date but it is expected to drop later this year. We will update you as soon as we know when it's coming out and an official trailer is made available.

We cannot wait to see it and find out what else Joel acts in next.
