Meryl Streep, Ariana Grande, Nicole Kidman, and more to star in Ryan Murphy's 'The Prom' adaptation


Few Hollywood directors have the ability to bring together so many high profile stars for one project, and it looks like Ryan Murphy is at it again.

This time Murphy’s landed Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Ariana Grande, Awkwafina, and Keegan Michael Key for his film adaptation of the musical The Prom. Andrew Rannells and James Corden are also attached to star, with Murphy on board to direct and executive produce the film and soundtrack. The project is part of Murphy’s 5-year deal with Netflix, with several shows and documentaries already in the works.

The Prom originally debuted in Atlanta, Georgia in 2016 before its official Broadway opening in 2018. It was nominated for six Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Book.

According to Deadline, the film is set for a Fall 2020 release — just in time for awards season. The film will have a short run in theaters before heading exclusively to Netflix.
