Gaten Matarazzo YA Film ‘Honor Society’ Gets Paramount+ Release Date

Paramount+ has set a release date for their upcoming YA movie “Honor Society.”

The coming-of-age story will debut on the service around the end of July. Starring Gaten Matarazzo and Angourie Rice, “Honor Society” explores the costs and benefits of being a tenacious, ambitious young woman in the modern world.

The film also stars Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Armani Jackson, Amy Keum and Ben Jackson Walker.

Rice plays Honor, an ambitious high schooler whose only goal is to get into Harvard, assuming she can first earn the coveted recommendation from her guidance counselor, Mr. Calvin (Mintz-Plasse).

Willing to do whatever it takes, Honor concocts a devious plan to eliminate her top three student competitors, until things go awry when she unexpectedly falls for her biggest competition, Michael (Matarazzo).

“We’re thrilled to build on our recent success with compelling YA content and partner with Awesomeness Films to bring ‘Honor Society’s audacious story of ambition and empowerment to Paramount+ this summer,'” said Tanya Giles, Programming Director, Paramount Streaming.

“Honor Society” is directed by Oran Zegman and written by David A. Goodman. The film is produced by Michael Lewen and produced by Syrinthia Studer, Ron French and Don Dunn. Film development at Awesomeness is overseen by Fred D. Lee.

“Honor Society” will air on Paramount+ starting July 29.
