Thought the raging house party-turned-teenage-riot in Project X was out of control? Wait until you near the pitch for the next big party movie — it’s whole new level of debauchery. 

The as-yet-untitled movie pitch 20th Century Fox just acquired focuses on the electronic dance music (EDM) scene and will involve one of EDM’s biggest artists, DiploDeadline reports. Diplo is an American DJ and music producer and has worked with M.I.A., Beyonce, No Doubt, and Usher, and comprises half of the Major Lazer duo.

Diplo and his business partner Kevin Kusatsu are teaming up with Underground to executive produce the movie that’s being described as “8 Mile meets Project X in tone.” It will follow three teenagers as they attempt to get into Diplo’s electronic music festival.

So basically a grittier, louder, bigger party, with more naked women, drugs, and alcohol, higher stakes, and better music? Bring it on. We just hope entire city blocks don’t get destroyed in this movie.

Writer Sydney Bucksbaum likes to think her hobby of watching insane amounts of TV isn't an obsession... it's not an obsession, okay, so just drop it! As the resident CW-lover on the Hollywood.com staff, she truly believes her Clark Kent/Dean Winchester/Damon Salvatore/Lucas Scott/Oliver Queen/Chuck Bass/Seymour Birkhoff/Wade Kinsella/Vincent Keller/Micah Barnes is out there somewhere, waiting for her, in real life (just go with it). After graduating from Northwestern University with a degree in journalism, Sydney has made it her mission to campaign for more shirtless scenes for her favorite CW hunks. You're welcome.
