The movie's development has started in 2011, along with the release of Rhythm Heaven Fever on Japan, and it was meant to be a short OVA to promote the game. However, with the announcement of the release of the game on the USA, Paramount Pictures picked the project and decided to publish on the West.
The movie was originally going to be about all the games within Rhythm Heaven Fever, however Paramount Pictures wanted to make a romantic/drama movie, so they decided to pick only one minigame, so they picked Double Date. They contacted Japanese/French writer, Yumiko-san, to write the movie.
