In a recent interview on BBC Radio 1 with legendary DJ Pete Tong, deadmau5 broke the news that he is currently working on the score for an upcoming film with an unnamed Hollywood director. He told Tong he just received the second draft of the film's scriptment, a combination of a script and a treatment that directors adapt to suit their vision. Deadmau5 also told Tong that the film's score would remain his main producing focus for the coming year.

Last week, deadmau5 posted via Instagram that he was building a temporary studio inside the mansion; however, his most recent tweet unveiling the backyard location of his upcoming studio suggests why the temporary studio was created in the first place. The enormous home studio will ultimately serve as a “complex for actual musicians.” Take a look at the design below.
