Project X is a 2012 comedy-thriller film directed by Nima Nourizadeh in his feature film debut, written by Michael Bacall and Matt Drake based on a story by Bacall, and produced by The Hangover director Todd Phillips. The plot follows Thomas (Thomas Mann), Costa (Oliver Cooper) and J.B.(Jonathan Daniel Brown), three friends who plan to gain popularity by throwing a party, a plan which quickly escalates out of their control.

The title Project X was initially a placeholder for a final title, but interest generated by the secretive title resulted in it being kept. The film was cast through a nationwide open casting call to find people who never acted before or who had limited acting experience. The majority of the cast were sourced from this casting call, but a few with prior acting credits, such as Mann, were accepted after multiple auditions. Filming took place on sets entirely in Los Angeles, California over five weeks on a $12 million budget. The film is presented as a home video from the perspective of an attendee using a camera to document the night’s events.

Project X was released in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom on March 2, 2012.

Three friends (Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper, Jonathan Daniel Brown) plan to throw the ultimate party and make a name for themselves. As the guests keep arriving however, the party descends into total chaos.

Project X was not intended to be the title of the film, as it was only used as a temporary placeholder on scripts while the producers decided on the final name, but it was kept to capitalize on interest generated by the rumored secrecy surrounding the project. Adding to the secrecy, producers decided to not send full scripts to any prospective cast, instead providing only watermarked individual pages.[8] Nourizadeh was chosen as director in what would be his debut feature film, only having previous experience directing music videos and commercials. Nourizadeh was chosen based on this work and his interpretation of the Project X concept. Writers Michael Bacall and Matt Drake were told to “go crazy” with the script, although Bacall confessed “I was a nerd in high school so I never did anything like what’s in the movie”. Bacall worked on the script generally at nights between simultaneously working on the scripts for 21 Jump Street and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
