Voltage Pictures is handling global sales at the European Film Market on the 23-year-old half-Cuban American actress/singer’s teen romance Time Is Up, also starring Italian pop star Benjamin Mascolo.
The film, currently in post production, centers on two high-school seniors, Vivien (Thorne), who is an accomplished student with a passion for physics, and Roy (Mascolo), a troubled young man. When an accident forces the unlikely pair to come to a stop and reclaim their lives, one minute at the time, they finally start living in a present that perhaps will prove to be more exciting than any predefined formula.
The English-language film was shot over six-weeks on location in Rome and the US.
Nikolay Moss, Roberto Davide and Sebastiano Pigazzi round out the cast. Elisa Amoruso directs from a script she co-wrote with Lorenzo Ura and Patrizia Fiorellini.

Elisa Amoruso will direct the film that she co-wrote with Lorenzo Ura and Patrizia Fiorellini.
The movie follows two high school seniors ‘Vivien’ (Thorne) and Roy (Mascolo) who at first glance appear to have starkly different personalities. Vivien is a highly accomplished student, with a passion for physics and keen to get into a prestigious American university. She seems to live her own life as a mathematical formula that drives her to look at her own happiness as something to be postponed into the future. Roy, on the other hand, is a troubled and problematic young man who, due to a trauma suffered as a child, sees his desires continually hindered by a past that seems to constantly haunt him. However, mathematics too has its variables and, as always happens, life manages to weave events together in increasingly surprising and unexpected ways. Indeed, an accident will force our protagonists to come to a stop and reclaim their lives, one minute at the time, and finally start living in a present that perhaps will prove to be more exciting than any predefined.
The film will shoot on location in Rome, Italy and the USA.
Most recently, Thorne starred in the hit indie post Covid theatrical release, Infamousthat opened as the #1 theatrical release in June 2020. She can next be seen in lead roles in the indie features, Girland Chick Fightthat are both opening next month.
Mascolo is a multi-platinum musician and the movie marks his acting debut.

Written and directed by Chad Foust, the film also stars Mickey Rourke. The deal comes ahead of the film’s U.S. premiere later this week at Fantastic Fest. A November day-and-date release is in the works.
Thorne plays a woman (she’s only known as Girl) who returns to her small hometown to exact revenge on her abusive father, only to discover someone murdered him the day before. As she searches for answers, she soon finds herself prey to a sinister sheriff (Rourke) and uncovers a disturbing family legacy more disturbing than she’d imagined. The film marks Foust’s directorial debut, and he also co-stars with Glen Gould, Lanette Ware and Elizabeth Saunders.

Bella Thorne is makin’ bank while doing some research for her next project…
The 22-year-old half-Cuban American actress/singer has reportedly earned $2 million since joining OnlyFans.
Thorne became a part of the subscription-only social media platform on Wednesday, charging users $20 a month for access to her feed.
The site — which allows influencers, adult entertainers and celebrities to share content that might be too X-rated for Instagram or Twitter — also hosts pages from Cardi Band some members of Bravo‘s Real Housewives programs.
But Thorne isn’t on OnlyFans just to make bank. She admits that’s certainly part of it: She’s planning on putting the earnings into her production company and toward charity.
But she also says she’s using the site as research for a new movie she’s making with Sean Baker, the director of such critically acclaimed indie films as The Florida Project andTangerine.
“It’s a feature we are researching as I’m living it currently,” Thorne explained via text message. “What are the ins and outs? What does a platform like this do to its users? What’s the connective material between your life and your life inside the world of OnlyFans? … How can it change your life for the worse and the better? How far are you willing to go, and how far do you WANT to go? You can be me, or this talented girl from Montana, and OnlyFans could change your life — if you want it to, of course.”
Thorne said she plans to act in the film, which would be written and directed by Baker. The filmmaker declined to comment on the movie, but a source close to the project said it was “very early in its development — in its infancy — and probably years away from turning into anything.”
Thorne is still figuring out what she wants to share with OnlyFans users. So far, her page does feature some suggestive imagery — numerous bikini photos, her eating a hot dog — but nothing explicitly graphic.
In a poll, however, she did ask her fans what type of content they’d like from her; tongue teasing, lingerie, booty, showering and twerking were among the answers.
Ultimately, she said, she’s hoping her page can become a place she “can really just be more personal with my fans,” sending them “good night and good morning personal messages” via voice memo. She also plans to offer classes on writing in Final Draft, baking and songwriting.
Thorne, who rose to fame as a child star on the Disney Channel series Shake It Up, has been open about her serious acting ambitions in recent years. Since wrapping the Freeform series Famous in Love in 2018, she’s appeared in five films, most recently a thriller called Infamous, released on video-on-demand in June.
“To win an Oscar — that’s the thing that I’ve always wanted,” Thorne told The Times in 2018. “It goes up every year on my vision board.”
Vertical Entertainment will debut the 22-year-old half-Cuban American actress/singer’s action-crime thriller Infamous in close to three dozen drive-ins on the East Coast, in the Midwest and the South. The move comes as the country continues to seek movie-viewing alternatives in the slow recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.
The film will also be available in digital virtual cinemas, all starting on Friday, June 12.
Infamous was written and directed by Joshua Caldwell.
Thorne plays Arielle, a young woman who lives in a small Florida town, stuck in a diner job. Arielle has always wanted more: fame, popularity and admiration. But when she falls for a recently paroled young criminal named Dean, she drags him back into a life of danger, learning that posting their criminal exploits on social media is an easy way to viral fame. They embark on a dangerous adventure together that leads to robbery, cop chases, and murder.
