Walt Disney Studios has teamed up with Lionel Richie to develop an original musical movie based on songs from the legend’s catalog.
The movie is tentatively titled “All Night Long,” after Richie’s 1983 No. 1 hit. Richie and his manager Bruce Eskowitz are producing the project with Cavalry Media executives Dana Brunetti and Matt Del Piano.
Richie seemed to confirm the news on Twitter, writing “Big things in the works!” and sharing a link to Variety‘s report.
Screenwriter Pete Chiarelli, who worked on Crazy Rich Asians, The Proposal and Now You See Me 2, is currently at work on the script.
