Max Joseph (“Catfish”) will be making his directorial debut on his film “We Are Your Friends,” and the film has just launched its first-look video, which is first in a series of videos that will provide a “behind the scenes look” on the making of the Zac Efron-starrer film. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
Joseph invites fans to follow the production process of his passion project, which will be airing sometime next year. The director has launched a YouTube page, where he will update weekly with what’s going on in the set, as well as rare peeks while filming and intimate moments with the team.
Furthermore, Joseph is familiar with the electronic dance music scene, having directed the documentary “DFA Records: Too Old to Be New, Too New to Be Classic,” as well as the music label for LCD Soundsystem, Holy Ghost! and Hot Chip.
Actor Zac Efron has been throwing out his support by posting the video on his Instagram and Twitter feeds.
“We Are Your Friends” stars Zac Efron, Wes Bentley and Emily Ratajkowski, set in a world of electronic music and the Hollywood nightlife. Cole (Efron) is an aspiring 23-year-old DJ who spends most of his days goofing along with his childhood friends. He is working on nights as a DJ to make a “one track that will set the world on fire.”
However, all of these changes when he meets James (Bentley), a veteran DJ who takes Cole under his wing. Things get complicated when Cole meets James’ much younger girlfriend, Sophie (Emily Ratajkowski), and starts developing feelings for her. A forbidden relationship, a falling out among friends and a yet unaccomplished dream, Cole must now choose between love, loyalty and the future he’s destined to have.
“We Are Your Friends” is directed by Max Joseph, who will also pen the screenplay with Meaghan Oppenheimer from a story by Richard Silverman.
Working Title Films’ Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will produce the project, with Silverman as executive producer. Studio Canal will be financing and repping domestic rights for release.
