Miguel to Star in Musical Drama Produced by John Legend

The R&B stars prepare to take on Hollywood.

Published April 7, 2015

John Legend and Miguel are teaming up for a new project to make their mark on Hollywood. Legend, fresh off his Oscar win with Common for the Selma original song "Glory," will produce and create music for a musical romantic drama starring the "Adorn" singer.

According to Variety, Miguel will star as a "former one-hit wonder who regains his love for music when he is hired to coach an aspiring singer for her audition on a singing competition show." Music video director Nabil Elderkin will direct in his feature film directorial debut. Production is expected to begin in Philadelphia in September.

Though this will be Miguel's acting debut, he has contributed original songs and covers to a variety of projects over the years, such as the Girls Vol. 2 soundtrack, The Hunger Games soundtrack and last year's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road 40th anniversary box set.
