Zac Efron In Negotiations to Star in Max Joseph's Untitled DJ Project (Exclusive)
Working Title is producing the movie, which is set in the world of electronic dance music
Hot off the stunning success of “Neighbors,” Zac Efron is in negotiations to star in Max Joseph's untitled DJ project that will be produced by Working Title, multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.
Written by Joseph and Meaghan Oppenheimer, the coming-of-age story follows a young DJ as he works on what he hopes is his first hit track.
Joseph is an up-and-coming filmmaker who co-hosts MTV's “Catfish” with Nev Schulman. The untitled DJ project will serve as his feature directorial debut following his award-winning “Follow the Frog” commercial and the acclaimed short documentary “12 Years of DFA Records.”
The director is currently auditioning hot young actors and actresses for the other lead roles, as shooting will begin this July in Los Angeles.
Working Title's untitled DJ movie won't be Joseph's first foray into the world of electronic music, as he previously directed the Aaron Weber-produced short documentary “12 Years of DFA Records: Too Old to be New, Too New to be Classic.” Released in 2013, “12 Years” recently screened at SXSW and received critical acclaim within both the film and music industries.
