The Chainsmokers are set to produce a movie based on their popular track ‘Paris’.
Developing a feature based on their hit with Mickey Rapkin – the author who wrote the book that was the inspiration for the Pitch Perfect franchise – the ‘Paris’ movie will see Nick Krishnamurthy oversee the project for Tri-Star.
The Chainsmokers added:
“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 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.”
Dan Marcus, a former Digital Media agent at UTA, has been named COO and president and will oversee development and production for the company, and added
“The Chainsmokers have a deep connection to their fans, not only through their music, but through what they stand for and represent: transcending preconceived limitations, pursuing one’s passion, entrepreneurialism, and a commitment to living an authentic life. They don’t just sing about these themes in their hit songs – it’s who they are.”
Stay tuned for more information on this one!
