Wiz Khalifa, French Montana, Teyana Taylor to Star in Netflix Comedy ‘The After Party’
Def Pictures, WorldStar Hip Hop, Hunting Lane Films and Live Nation Productions have teamed up with Netflix to create the hip-hop comedy, which is the first scripted project for Live Nation Productions. Russell Simmons will serve as the producer for the film.
According to Deadline, the plot surrounds two best friends on their last night together trying to secure a record deal before one heads off to college and the other joins the military. Shenanigans will ensue before the sun comes up.
WorldStar Hip Hop’s late founder Lee “Q” O’Denat was inspired to develop the idea for the film "because of his love of such coming-of-age films as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and American Graffiti," reports Deadline.
The film was shot in New York and is slated to be released in 2018.
