From packed out festivals to the big screen, the ever-popular dance music craze will be getting the “Hollywood” treatment soon.

According to Deadline.com, 20th Century Fox has acquired the rights to an unnamed pitch centered around the genre. The movie is expected to be produced by Diplo and his business partner Kevin Kusatsu, while written by Adam Weinstock and Andy Jones.

The film, which is still in planning stages, has been described as “8 Mile meets Project X.” The vague, rumored plot focuses on three teens who embark on an adventure to reach Diplo’s electronic music festival. Castings and a release date have yet to be confirmed.
