The story takes place during “one wild night,” but will shoot for six weeks in New York, including on location at The Meadows Music and Arts Festival at Citi Field in Queens, and a live concert at the Gramercy Theater.

The film stars Kyle Harvey (better known as the artist Kyle), Teyana Taylor, Jordan Rock, Wiz KhalifaFrench Montana, Blair Underwood, Harrison Holzer (“Better Living Through Chemistry,” “Sex Tape”), and Shelley Hennig (“Teen Wolf”), and will feature a number of celebrity cameos.

“The After Party” is produced by Russell Simmons, Jake Stein, Jamie Patricof, Heather Parry, Trevor Engelson, Doug Banker, and O’Denat. Michael Rapino, Katie McNeill, and Jonathan Montepare executive produce.
