Real-life EDM stars Alesso, Dillon Francis, Nicky Romero and Them Jeans make cameos in the DJ drama
A new trailer has been released for We Are Your Friends, the forthcoming film set in the world of electronic dance music (EDM) starring Zac Efron.
Efron plays an aspiring DJ trying to make it on Hollywood’s EDM scene who attracts the attention of an older, more established DJ (Interstellar‘s Wes Bentley), who then becomes his mentor. However, when Efron falls for his mentor’s girlfriend (Emily Ratajkowski, who starred in Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ video), he is forced to make some difficult decisions.
Named after Justice vs. Simian’s 2006 EDM banger ‘We Are Your Friends’, the film features cameo appearances from real-life EDM DJs Alesso, Dillon Francis, Nicky Romero and Them Jeans.
We Are Your Friends was co-written and directed by Max Joseph, the “cameraman” from Catfish: The TV Show, in his feature film directorial debut. It opens in cinemas in the US and UK on August 28.
NME recently included We Are Your Friends in its gallery of 10 Must-See Movies Still to Come This Summer. Check out the full gallery here.
Meanwhile, it has recently been reported that Chloe Moretz is “in talks” to join Zac Efron, Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne in Bad Neighbours 2. The sequel to last year’s R-rated comedy smash is set for release on May 13, 2016.
