Antoine Dodson, 'Double Rainbow Guy' to Star in Movie

Photo Courtesy - Taylor Hill/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- They already made it big on the computer screen, so can YouTube's viral sensations succeed on the silver screen? Producer Andrew Fischer thinks so.

The CEO of Colorado-based marketing company NURV has recruited Antoine Dodson of "Bed Intruder Song" fame, "Double Rainbow Guy" Paul Vasquez and a handful of other Internet video personalities to star in a feature film-length movie called The Chronicles of Rick Roll.

As meme-watchers may notice, the name of the movie refers to an infamous Rick Astley Internet prank. But Fischer said the movie itself is no hoax -- there is indeed a real script and the actors are indeed getting paid.

"The movie will be not what people are expecting at all. ...Granted the title makes people a little wary of being pranked," he said. "It's not going to feel like a spoof movie...It certainly will be humorous, but more in an ironic sense."

Fischer declined to disclose details on his "epic comedy," which he hopes to release in theaters once a distributor signs on. But he emphasized that the movie is legitimate and was written with his cast of YouTube sensations in mind.

In addition to Dodson and Vasquez, the movie features YouTube greats Ben Schulz ("Leeroy Jenkins"), Brian Collins ("Boom Goes the Dynamite"), Stephen Quire ("Greatest Freakout Ever") and Gary Brolsma ("Numa Numa").

Though a short trailer is making the rounds online, the movie still has a ways to go before it reaches a theater audience. Fischer declined to say when he hopes to release the final product, but said a longer trailer (which will tease even more of the movie) will hit the Web in the next week or two.
