The Disconnect film is set to star designer Marc Jacobs. While the style icon has worn many hats, inclusive of his role as a runway guru and gay rights activist, the project marks his debut on to the Hollywood acting scene.

Directing Disconnect is Henry-Alex Rubin who was closely tied to the acclaimed Murderball movie. While the story incorporates a series of themes, it is primarily based on the excess of distrust and deceit that can come with online chat rooms and virtual communication. The characters become entangled in an online web of actionable issues, many of which involve lewd passes. Jacobs is associated with the latter as he took on the persona of pimp who targets teenagers.
