In 2014, DJ culture and electronic dance music were so inescapable that even Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Productions wanted to capitalize on the phenomenon by producing a film called I’m In Love With The DJ. The script came from McKay’s former assistant, Lauryn Kahn, and it centered around a group of women who go on a trip to Spain for “a crazy hunt for a hot DJ,” but nothing ever came of it until now. According to Deadline, I’m In Love With The DJ now has a cast, a new title, and a new home at Netflix.
The film is now called Ibiza, and it’s set to star Gillian Jacobs, Vanessa Bayer, and Phoebe Robinson, with former Funny Or Die contributor Alex Richanbach directing. Other than the title, it doesn’t sound like much about this project has changed, though Deadline says it’s about a “crazy hunt for a popular DJ” instead of a “hot DJ” now. At the risk of offending whoever is playing this DJ, that probably means that he’s not as hot as the script originally called for.
