Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Films has inked a deal with A24, the film studio responsible for movies like Uncut Gems, Midsommar, Lady Bird, the Oscar-snatching Moonlight and TV series Euphoria.
The ‘SICKO MODE’ rapper announced the news in a social media image of a “first draft” script, penned by Travis Scott, bearing the title Utopia (blacked out with marker). “Life is a movie. So is this album,” reads the caption.
Utopia is the name of La Flame’s upcoming album and follow-up to 2017’s ASTROWORLD, and insiders told Variety that the A24 deal covers multiple projects, but the “first ‘special project’ to launch” will align with the upcoming album.
We’re here to officially predict that the same thing is about to happen with A24. The privately-owned film production company is the independent distributor behind Oscar-winning movies such as Moonlight, Lady Bird, Minari and Ex Machina, as well as recently released The Green Knight and Zola, and was tapped by Elara to produce Uncut Gems in 2019.
A24 has also been given the nod by hip-hop megastar Travis Scott, who has announced that he is partnering with the indie label to create his own film, Utopia. The flick will be released at the same time as his upcoming album of the same name. In keeping with his previous album drops (Astroworld, Rodeo) we’re expecting a heap of excellent merch – likely featuring A24 and Scott’s Cactus Jack branding – to coincide with the launch.
If you want to get ahead of the game, read on. The production giant, which is based in New York City, has already been putting out its own in-house merch. A24 recently partnered with Californian tie-dye T-shirt company Online Ceramics to create a range of garments emblazoned with the graphics from The Green Knight, while the pair previously dropped Midsommar and Hereditary Treehouse gear. What’s more, A24 has even teamed up with Jonah Hill on a T-shirt drop, as well as streetwear label Brain Dead.
