NEW YORK — A collection of Internet stars from Antoine Dodson to the Double Rainbow Guy are making a movie.

Producer Andrew Fischer has gathered more than a half-dozen YouTube stars for “The Chronicles of Rick Roll.” He is shooting the film and has released a trailer online. The 26-year-old Fischer calls it an “epic comedy.”

The film stars Dodson, known for the Bed Intruder Song, Bear Vasquez (“Double Rainbow Guy”), Brian Collins (“Boom Goes the Dynamite”), Ben Schulz (“Leeroy Jenkins”), Gary Brolsma (“Numa Numa”), and Stephen and Jack Quire (“Greatest Freakout Ever”). Together they account for hundreds of millions of YouTube views.

Although the film’s title refers to the misleading Rick Astley Internet meme, Fischer says the film is authentic.

“The next trailer will show that it’s not just some giant elaborate prank,” Fischer says.

The film is being shot on hi-definition digital. Fischer hopes for a theatrical release, but has not secured distribution. The Colorado-based marketing firm NURV, of which Fischer is CEO, is producing the film.

“Our goal is to utilize the fan base and the celebrity status that these household names have, even though they’re not in Hollywood, in order to produce something that maybe changes the way Hollywood looks at casting,” says Fischer.

Fischer says he would welcome cameos from more Internet stars.
