“We Are Your Friends” is a Working Title film also starring Emily Ratajkowski (“Gone Girl”) and Wes Bentley (“Interstellar”). Max Joseph directs the drama.
Studiocanal financed the film and sold it to Warner Bros. last fall at the American Film Market. Set in the world of electronic music and Hollywood nightlife, “We Are Your Friends” explores the tormented friendship between an aspiring 23-year-old DJ (Efron) and a damaged older DJ (Bentley) who takes him under his wing.
The script was co-written by Joseph and Meaghan Oppenheimer based on a story by Richard Silverman. Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Liza Chasin are producing.
“We Are Your Friends” is the third title to be set for Aug. 28 after Fox’s “Hitman: Agent 47” and TWC-Dimension’s “Regression.”
