Thomas Wesley Pentz, better know for his stage name Diplo, is reportedly in talks with 20th Century Fox on making a feature length movie focusing on the EDM (Electronic Dance Music) scene. According to Deadline, the Philidealphia-based American DJ is planning to branch out into the world of filmmaking.

Although he will not direct or star in the movie, he will be the driving creative performance behind the movie, which is labeled as a cross between 8 Mile and Project X in tone, as three teens try to get into Diplo’s Electronic Music Festival.

With the dance music craze exploding recently, it’s no surprise Hollywood has caught on, and with Diplo executive producing, it can be assumed that it will have an astonishing soundtrack to say the least.

Meanwhile check out his EP, “Keep It Gully”, available now on iTunes.
