Press Play incorporates music into its story. It is written by Björkman and James Bachelor from a story by Josh Boone. On October 7, 2019, CJ Entertainment announced it would produce the film starring Clara Rugaard, Lewis Pullman, Danny Glover, and Lyrica Okano. In a statement, Boone said “music has always been my magic carpet ride into the past. This story sprung from that idea — music as time travel.” Björkman said “music can be such an integral part of one’s life. What better way to travel back in time than through the soundtrack of your youth.”
