WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS is an upcoming romance drama which marks Max Joseph’s (MTV’s Catfish: The TV Show) feature film directorial debut, and stars Zac Efron, Emily Ratajkowski (Entourage, Gone Girl) and Wes Bentley.
The film is about what it takes to find your voice. Set in the world of electronic music and Hollywood nightlife, an aspiring 23-year-old DJ named Cole (Efron) spends his days scheming with his childhood friends and his nights working on the one track that will set the world on fire. All of this changes when he meets a charismatic but damaged older DJ named James (Bentley), who takes him under his wing. Things get complicated, however, when Cole starts falling for James’ much younger girlfriend, Sophie (Ratajkowski). With Cole’s forbidden relationship intensifying and his friendships unraveling, he must choose between love, loyalty, and the future he is destined for.
Joseph directs from a screenplay he wrote with Meaghan Oppenheimer, from a story by Richard Silverman. Jon Abrahams, Jonny Weston and Shiloh Fernandez also stars.
