Back to the Future and High School Musical Stars Team Up to Star in
Camp Hideout in Theaters Nationwide Sept 15
A story of friendship, belonging, and summer camp shenanigans
Los Angeles, CA. (July 31, 2023) – Roadside Attractions, PZAJ, and Called Higher Studios are thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Camp Hideout an entertaining, family-friendly adventure film directed by four-time Emmy winner Sean Olson. The movie brings together an ensemble cast to share the story of friendship, belonging, and the transformative power of the camp experience for audiences of all ages.
Mischievous foster teen Noah (Ethan Drew) finds himself in trouble again. After one such petty crime and crossing paths with two foes, he chooses summer camp over juvenile hall. Upon arrival, Noah quickly comes to realize the camp's notorious owner, Falco (Christopher Lloyd) and his dog Lazaraus ironically loathe children. The double whammy takes a turn as Jake (Corbin Bleu), an optimistic camp leader, lifts Noah’s pessimistic attitude. The friendship snowballs for the good as Noah opens up to fellow campers and together they bond in all the fun and memorable ways camp offers. When all seems well, the “bad guys” show up at camp in search of Noah to take back what he stole. Together, Noah and his fellow campers band together to construct a funhouse hideout in the woods, packed with booby traps, zip lines, and bees. In a “change of heart,” cold-hearted Falco warms to the campers, and steps in to help; and together they all learn a valuable lesson of sticking together.
"Roadside Attractions is delighted to bring Camp Hideout to the big screen. The film will take audiences back to the nostalgic memories and adventures from their own camp experiences. This is a film for families and audiences of all ages," remarked Roadside Attractions' Co-President Howard Cohen. “With the recent success of The Super Mario Bros. Movie, and with the anticipation of the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, it’s evident nostalgia is making a comeback.”
Starring Corbin Bleu (High School Musical), Amanda Leighton (This is Us), Ethan Drew (Camp Hideout), and Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), Camp Hideout is directed by Sean Olson, written by Kat Olson, C. Neil Davenport, and Dave DeBorde, and produced by PZAJ’s Phillip Glasser and Called Higher Studio’s Jason Brown.
Producer Jason Brown said, “I’m always looking for stories my family can enjoy together. Noah’s story of a kid searching for belonging and the power of friendship are lessons I aim to inspire in my own kids–and are what I’ve made as my mission in production.”
Camp Hideout hits theaters throughout the country on September 15. Visit CampHideoutMovie.com for more information on locations, tickets, and showtimes.
