At some point, it’s just going to be easier to report on which movies aren’t about electronic music. Back in 2012, Warner Bros. announced that it was making a movie about a DJ who is also a spy or some shit, then Fox said it was making a Project X-style dance party movie featuring Diplo. HBO hit the floor earlier this year by revealing that it was working on a comedy show about electronic music, and then Will Ferrell and Adam McKay jumped in with I’m In Love With The DJ, a movie about a group of girls on a wacky romp through Europe who are trying to find a specific “hot DJ.”
Now, according to The Wrap, Zac Efron is “in negotiations” to star in Max Joseph’s Untitled DJ Project, an untitled movie project about a DJ. Efron would reportedly play Unnamed DJ Character, an up-and-coming DJ who is developing “what he hopes will be his first hit track.”
Joseph, the co-host of MTV’s Catfish, has yet to direct an actual feature film, but he does have a short documentary and some commercials on his résumé. We just hope this isn’t an elaborate catfishing scheme, and what we thought was a new Zac Efron DJ movie is actually one of those other DJ movies. We just wouldn’t be able to handle being lied to like that over the Internet.
