The Chainsmokers are looking to turn their hit song of the summer into a hit film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Drew Taggart and Alex Pall are developing a film based off their 2017 hit single, ‘Paris’. The two DJ’s will be teaming up with Mickey Rapkin to help write the movie. Rapkin was the author who wrote the book that spawned the Pitch Perfect franchise, and will be penning the screenplay for this new film.
The Chainsmokers are set to produce the feature through their newly formed production company, Kick The Habit Productions. The duo’s manager and CEO of Disruptor Records, Adam Alpert, will serve as CEO of the company.
Taggart and Pall expressed their excitement and passion for their new creative venture. “We are beyond thrilled to have launched Kick The Habit Productions as we continue to bridge the gap between our overall artistic vision, the entertainment industry as a whole and our fans,” the two explained. “The age of being only a musician is over and we’re excited to go all-in on this venture to curate, produce and create meaningful projects.”
