Lucas Cruikshank's YouTube creation and sensation "Fred Figglehorn" is getting a 3-D movie. Lionsgate, Varsity Pictures and The Collective are producing Night of the Living Fred, which is a follow-up to 2010's Fred: The Movie (which debuted on Nickelodeon). While Lionsgate has North American distribution rights, they are selling international rights to the film. Family Guy's David A. Goodman wrote the script and John Fortenberry (Blue Mountain State) is directing. Lionsgate production/development president Michael Paseornek says:

“We're always excited to partner with talent who has a direct relationship with a broad online fan base, because there are so many possibilities for engaging that audience throughout the filmmaking and marketing process.  Lucas is a true next generation entertainer, and we are so proud to bring Fred, the unique character he created, to his fans in 3D. Fred has already conquered the online world and achieved record ratings for Nickelodeon, and we believe he's ready for his feature film debut." 

Production has kicked off. Check out some videos from Fred below. This is the future of movie making?
