Emily Ratajkowski, the sexy dancer from Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ video, is joining Zac Efron for the upcoming movie ‘We Are Your Friends,’ HollywoodLife.com’s sister site Deadline reports. Read on for all the details!
It appears as though Robin Thicke‘s “Blurred Lines” helped boost more than just Miley Cyrus’ career. Emily Ratajkowski, the 23-year-old sexy stunner who bared it all in the music video, will star alongside Zac Efron, 26, in We Are Your Friends.

The film, which will be directed by Catfish’s Max Joseph, is set in the world of electronic dance music, and follows a 23-year-old DJ named Cole (Zac) as he prepares for his big break, HollywoodLife.com’s sister site Deadline reports.
Cole meets an older DJ named James, who takes him under his wing. Things take a turn for the worse when Cole falls in love with his mentor’s much younger girlfriend, Sophie, presumably played by Emily.
While Emily is primarily known for shaking her booty in Robin’s sexy music video, she first broke into Hollywood on Nickelodeon’s iCarly. However, most recently, she starred opposite Ben Affleck in the forthcoming film Gone Girl.
Emily’s career is certainly on fire right now! Hopefully, the heat never simmers.
We Are Your Friends starts shooting August 18 in the San Fernando Valley. We can’t wait to see the final product, but until then — re-watch Robin’s “Blurred Lines” video with us below.
