When the end of “Shake It Up” was announced, it was also revealed that Zendaya would be starring in a Disney Channel Original Movie based on the book Boys Are Dogs.
Filming for the TV movie is currently underway and now we have even more details on the flick. It will be called “Zapped” and will also star Spencer Boldman (“Lab Rats”) and Adam DiMarco (“Radio Rebel”).
The movie is a comedy adventure movie slated to premiere on Disney Channels around the world, as well as on Canada’s Family Channel in 2014. The storyline follows 16 year-old Zoey Stevens, a skilled dancer and straight-A student who is having a hard time adjusting to a new high school, a new and klutzy dance squad, a new step-dad, three new rowdy step-brothers and an unruly dog. But things change when a dog training app on her smart phone begins to somehow control all the boys around her.
Also starring are Chanelle Peloso (“Radio Rebel”) as Rachel Todds, Spencer Boldman as Jackson Kale, Emilia McCarthy (“Hemlock Grove”) as Taylor Dean and Adam DiMarco as Adam Thompson.
We had the chance to chat with Spencer at D23 before it was announced that he was in the film, but we used our detective skills to figure it out. He wouldn’t give us much detail but did say “it will be really fun.” He also shared “Zendaya is a really great girl, so it’s been fun to work with her.”
Watch Spencer’s full interview below and let us know if you’re excited for “Zapped”!
