You may soon be yelling Worldstar!, in a movie theater. Our favorite urban culture site is going from the web to the big screen, courtesy of Paramount Insurge. Deadline reports that Paramount bought a pitch for a feature film inspired by the highly trafficked urban culture site.
How To Make It In America creator Ian Edleman came up with an original pitch that he may also direct. Very little is known of the plot, but apparently it’s being described as being akin to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off . Yeah, don’t ask. Russell Simmons is reportedly on board to produce along side site director Q Worldstar. A New York City shoot could begin as soon as this fall.
