This took a surprisingly long time when you think about it: A major movie based on the world of EDM is in the works over at Fox. Diplo is involved somehow.
20th Century Fox has acquired an untitled pitch that will be built around the Electronic Dance Music craze, and will involve one of its biggest stars, Diplo. The film will be written by Adam Weinstock and Andy Jones, and Underground’s Trevor Engelson is producing. Noah Rothman is exec producer. Underground is teamed with Diplo and his business partner Kevin Kusatsu, both of whom are exec producers. The pic’s described as 8 Mile meets Project X in tone, as three teens try to get into Diplo’s Electronic Music Festival. Weinstock and Jones are represented by CAA and Underground.
Diplo fans and EDM heads—excited for this release?
