The Chainsmokers partner with Tri-Star pictures to produce feature film inspired by ‘Paris’

A favorite off of The Chainsmokers‘ 2017 album, Memories, Do Not Open, “Paris” will soon receive extended visual representation. Tri-Star Pictures has collaborated with the American DJ duo to turn the lead single into a full-on motion picture. The author of the book series that would go on to grow into the top grossing Pitch Perfect franchise will write the screenplay for Tri-Star, which is a division of Sony Pictures. The upcoming film hammers in the “Closer” hit makers’ progression from music studio to movie screen, following the establishment of their Kick The Habit production company which sold the screenplay to “Paris.”

“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,” Drew Taggart and Alex Pall said in a joint statement from November 5. Prior Digital Media agent at UTA, Dan Marcus, will head the feature’s development and production for Kick The Habit, alongside Taggart and Pall. “Drew and Alex 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,” Marcus added. “They don’t just sing about these themes in their hit songs–it’s who they are.”

The Chainsmokers’ leap from music to feature production can be expected to pay artistic dividends, when the feature eventually arrives.
