The Grammy Award-winning EDM artists Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, known together as The Chainsmokers, have recently formed a production company called Kick the Habit Productions to make movies, TV series, and digital projects.

One of the first projects the producers are planning to create is a movie based on their 2017 hit single, “Paris”. In a statement released this week, The Chainsmokers said, “The age of being only a musician is over… We are beyond thrilled to have launched Kick The Habit Productions as we continue to bridge the gap between our overall artistic vision, the entertainment industry as a whole and our fans. We’re excited to go all-in on this venture to curate, produce and create meaningful projects.

Their song ‘Paris’, which was released as a single last year, is a song about escaping reality. The duo shared the story behind the song in one of their Facebook posts. They said “We used Paris as a metaphor to convey that he felt like he was in a place where everything was fine, while being acutely aware of other people’s concern for him. Paris always being this romantic idealised place, the song is about escaping your reality, a reality often void of excitement and in your mind being somewhere else with someone else.”
