Pass The Popcorn: Diplo Tapped To Produce EDM Film for 20th Century Fox

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

In case you haven't noticed, "EDM," is everywhere and that silly term is impossible to avoid. 20th Century Fox wants to get in on the rave culture by unleashing a movie with today's electronic music scene as the backdrop. They have enlisted Diplo to executive produce a film which will "follow three teenagers as they try to get into a Diplo-helmed festival." Think 8 Mile meets Project X. The Major Lazer DJ is no foreigner to filmmaking as he studied film at Temple University and released a documentary on Rio’s funk carioca scene entitled Favela On Blast in 2010. Stay tuned for more info on this project as it progresses.
