The Chainsmokers were targeted on the red carpet at the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show to dish on their television performance, collaborator Kelsea Ballerini, and the “Paris” inspired movie they’re working on.
To no surprise, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall gushed over the VS production and their “This Feeling” counterpart. But, they weren’t expecting to get asked about the “Paris” film project, a new and exciting venture for the duo. Apparently Mickey Rapkin, the author behind Pitch Perfect, heard the song and thought the concept would play out well on the big screen.
Taggart opened up in the on-camera interview with Billboard…
“He wrote an entire story, pitched it to us, and we re-worked all the parts we wanted to. It’s been about a year that we’ve been spending working on this pitch. And we went out and started pitching it to major film studios and TriStar bought it and now we’re producing a movie!”
He also revealed there’s “tons” more in the works…
“It’s all over the place, it’s not just one genre. We’re really excited. It’s scary for us because it’s a way for us to do something else creative. When you just do one thing creative, sometimes you get creative blocks and this is another place that we can put our creative efforts in, and we’re really excited for the future.”
