"The Prom" follows a lesbian student in the fictional conservative town of Edgewater, Ind., who wants to bring her girlfriend to her school's dance. The movie will then stream on Netflix. Murphy will likely start shooting the film this December, while Netflix plans to release it for fall 2020, which will put it smack-dab in the middle of awards season. Now Deadline reports that she will be diving back into the world of musicals, as she will star in a Netflix adaptation of the Broadway show The Prom.
In Prom, Streep - now starring on season 2 of HBO's Big Little Lies - will play Dee Dee Allen, a two-time Tony-winning stage actress who partners with Corden's Barry Glickman for a flop musical about the life of Eleanor Roosevelt.
Ryan Murphy will direct and produce, and Grande is part of a strong cast that also includes Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, James Corden, Awkwafina, Keegan-Michael Key, and Andrew Rannells. Casting is still reportedly underway for the role of Emma, but so far, this is one impressively eclectic roster of stars. In addition to co-starring, Grande will produce the soundtrack along with Murphy.
