(FROM HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) ? Lisa Kudrow has signed on to and David Bowie is in talks for the musical coming-of-age dramedy Will, which stars Vanessa Hudgens, Friday Night Lights‘ Scott Porter, and Liam Aiken (Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events), who has been cast in the title role. The story is about a high school outcast (Aiken) and a popular girl (Hudgens) who form an unlikely bond through a love of music and put together a group to perform at their school’s battle of the bands competition. Kudrow will play Will’s mother. Actor-turned-director Todd Graff (Camp) will helm from a script he co-wrote with Josh Cagan. Walden Media and Summit Entertainment are financing the project, which is scheduled to start production some time next month. (Hollywood Reporter)
