Sony Pictures has announced earlier today that a Hollywood live-action adaptation of “lofi hip hop radio – beats to relax/study to” has been green-lit.
The popular YouTube music stream has been watched by millions since 2017. Now that the stream is popular and no longer considered uncool or weird, Hollywood will appropriately cash in with a feature-length, live-action adaptation. The film will be directed by M. Night Shyamalan.
The film is set to star Scarlett Johansson, who will play a girl scribbling notes in a New York City apartment while listening to the most popular hot R&B and hip-hop songs currently on the Billboard charts.
Lofi hip hop: Evolution is expected to hit theaters next summer. The film is expected to be confusingly long and stripped of anything unfamiliar to American mass media.
While industry experts understand that longtime Lo-Fi hip-hop fans might be upset by the insincere adaptation, Shyamalan has assured fans that he doesn’t give a shit.
Like other Hollywood live-action adaptations, Lofi hip hop: Evolution will target the majority of western audiences: people who don’t understand Lo-Fi hip-hop and think Lo-Fi hip-hop streams are for kids rather than for sleep-deprived graduate students trying to cram a term paper.
