Emily Ratajkowski (“Gone Girl”) has landed the female lead opposite Zac Efron in Max Joseph’s coming of age DJ movie “We Are Your Friends” for Working Title and Studio Canal.
Efron plays an aspiring 23 year old Hollywood DJ named Cole who spends his days scheming with his childhood friends and his nights working on the one track that will set the world on fire.
All of this changes when he meets a charismatic but damaged older DJ named James who takes him under his wing. Things get complicated, however, when Cole starts falling for James’ much younger girlfriend, Sophie.
Jonny Weston, Shiloh Fernandez and Alex Shaffer are also in various stages of negotiations to join the film which starts shooting August 18th in the San Fernando Valley.
Ratajkowski made waves with her appearance in Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” music video which led to her casting as Ben Affleck’s mistress in David Fincher’s “Gone Girl.”
