Fox 2000 To Make Film Themed Around K-Pop
A new U.S. film about K-pop is in the works.
On August 21, it was revealed that Fox 2000 now holds rights to a film jointly pitched by Scooter Braun’s SB Projects and Epic Magazine. SB Projects manages popular artists like Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande, and also notably represents PSY and CL in the United States.
The film is said to be about “the story of an Asian-American college student from the United States who becomes a top competitor on South Korea’s toughest K-Pop Competition show.”
Elyse Hollander, known for her Madonna biopic script “Blonde Ambition,” will be writing the screenplay. Scott Braun and James Shin of SB Projects and Joshua Davis and Arthur Spector of Epic Magazine will be producing the film.
SB Projects’ Scott Manson, Epic Magazine’s Joshua Bearman, and Bellevue Productions’ John Zaozirny will be executive producers, with Fox 2000’s Erin Siminoff and Jiao Chen overseeing the project.
