20th Century Fox has acquired the rights to a currently untitled feature film about the Electronic Dance Music craze featuring one of EDM’s biggest stars, Diplo. The film is being written by Adam Weinstock and Andy Jones with Underground’s Trevor Engelson producing. Underground is teamed with Diplo and Kevin Kusatsu, his business partner, both of whom are executive producers in the film. The film, as described by many, will be a blend on “8 mile” and “Project X” and is based around 3 kids trying to get into a Diplo’s show. Kusatsu told The Faderin an email that the story is “like Eminem and Christopher Walken at a Manchester rave.”
No expected date for the film just yet.
