Pharrell Williams forays deeper into rave culture with new horror film
In a crossover that is sure to capture the attention of dance music fans, Pharrell Williams is putting music on pause as he begins work on a new horror movie about “being trapped in a rave on Halloween.”
The new thriller is based off of Danielle Vega’s novel, Survive The Night. Williams has already begun work on the forthcoming film, joining forces with the writer of Girl’s Trip, Tracy Oliver. The production will follow a group of female college students as they attend an “underground warehouse music festival.” The film’s suspense will build as the girls realize that they must elude a “mysterious attacker who hunts them down” at the event.
Williams’ recent experience as a music supervisor on Hidden Figures, an Oscar-nominated film, will translate into the horror film — newly acquired by Warner Bros. Williams will be joined by his partner at I Am Other Entertainment, Mimi Valdes. Leslie Morgenstein and Elysa Dutton of Alloy Entertainment will further assist Williams in the film’s development
