Vanessa Hudgens to Star in Will


“High School Musical” star Vanessa Hudgens has signed on to star in Will, Walden Media’s coming-of-age dramedy being directed by Todd Graff, says The Hollywood Reporter. Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas is producing.

Written by Graff and Josh Cagan, the story centers on a high school outcast and a popular girl who form an unlikely bond through their shared love of music. They assemble a like-minded crew of misfits and form a rock group to perform in a battle of the bands competition at their school.

Hudgens is playing Sam, a 15-year-old former stutterer now speaking slowly and deliberately, who becomes romantically entangled with the lead outcast.

The movie is set to shoot February in Austin, Texas.
