“Mockumentary” film Wannabe will premiere Friday not in theaters, but on the movie’s Facebook page, as part of a beta test by online movie outfit FutureLeap and online payment technology company ChargePlay.

The companies said Wannabe “follows the underappreciated yet incessant attempts at stardom by ex-boy-bander Steve and his best friend turned rival, Paul,” and it will be available starting Friday for 48-hour rentals via the film’s Facebook page for a suggested donation of $4.99.

FutureLeap said once its beta test with Wannabe is complete, it will meet with major studios in Los Angeles.
