“‘Smosh: The Movie’ marks a major next step in serving the millions of Smosh fans and an opportunity to entertain millions more,” said Defy Media CEO Matt Diamond.

The picture was written by Eric Falconer (“Blue Mountain State,” “How I Met Your Mother”) and Steve Marmel. Film is exec produced by Padilla, Hecox, Defy’s Barry Blumberg, Brett Bouttier, Joe Davola and Shauna Phelan. AwesomenessTV founder Brian Robbins (“Varsity Blues,” “Expelled”) serves as Producer.

Zoella- Xtra Factor Host?

download Definitely not happening. At least not this year.

Speculations suggested that Simon Cowell was wooing the 25-year-old to take over from Sarah Jane Crawford as host of this year’s Xtra Factor.
A source told The Sun that the top judge is ‘seriously interested’ in signing the video blogger for the spin-off show after being impressed at how she’s built up a lifestyle brand from scratch.

However, Zoella – real name Zoe Sugg – has taken to Twitter to insist she is baffled by the claims.

 Replying to a fan’s tweet that she was set to present the show, she wrote: ‘I don’t know where this has come from? I’m definitely not.’

Her denial comes as reports suggest Cowell is seriously shaking up the ITV talent show for the upcoming 2015 series.

Well I would love to see more of her on the small screen, but at the same time I wouldn’t mind seeing Dan and Phil Host the show.
