While things haven’t exactly been stellar for Robin Thicke, everything’s coming up Emily Ratajkowski.

If that name doesn’t sound familiar to you, it will: she’s the main model dancing in Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” video.

Starring in a video that has amassed more than 330 million hits is good for the old acting career, because Ratajkowski has landed a lead role in Zac Efron’s latest project.

Deadline reports that they’ll both star in “We Are Your Friends,” a new film set in the world of electronic dance music.

Efron will play Cole, a DJ who – “Magic Mike” style – finds a mentor in an older DJ named James.

Ratajkowski, who will hit the big screen in the highly-anticipated “Gone Girl,” will reportedly play James’s girlfriend, Sophie, who – and this is where things get really interesting – is also Efron’s love interest.

Shiloh Fernandez and Johnny Weston (“Insurgent”) will also star in “We Are Your Friends.”
