    Ryan Murphy is set to produce and direct a film adaptation of one of this year’s Tony nominated musicals, The Prom. Murphy will produce with Alexis Woodall, Bill Damaschke, and Dori Berinstein. The script is being adapted by book writers Bob Martin and Chad Beguelin. Casting has just been announced, which includes Meryl Streep as Dede Allen, James Corden as Barry Glickman, Nicole Kidman as Angie Dickinson, Andrew Rannells as Trent Oliver, Ariana Grande as Alyssa, Awkwafina as Ms. Sheldon, and Keegan-Michael Key as Principal Hawkins. Though a nationwide search led by casting director Alexa Fogel is on to fill the role of Emma Nolan. Principal photography is set to begin in December for a fall 2020 awards season release in theaters before it hits Netflix.

    I would like to congradulate meryl streep on another golden globe win. But on a serious note, this cast looks great. Streep and Kidman in a musical together, im sold.

    2020 is gonna be the year of the movie musicals. With this, west side story, and in the heights.

    So Ryan Murphy had the possibilty to give a great role to Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon, Frances Conroy, Judy Davis, Kathy Bates or Angela Basset who gave life to all his success on television this decade, and instead he gave the role to Meryl Streep?.Don’t get me wrong, I love Meryl, but she has plenty of roles out there.

    How much money are they paying these people? Most of the cast I understand but why would Nicole Kidman take a supporting part that isn’t even that big? They must have offered her a lot of money.

    Well, since this is a musical, Ryan Murphy obviously needed someone who is capable (especially musically) to pull off a role like Dede Allen.

    And Meryl Streep is? Any of those actresses can afford to train their voice and pull off that character.

    It’s going to be tough going against Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story.

    I guess they’re submitting Meryl Streep in Best Actress and Nicole Kidman in Supporting Actress. Honestly I feel neither is really fit for a musical.

    Meryl Streep has sang before on both the stage and screen. She did a short-lived Broadway musical back in 1977 titled Happy End, as well as several movie musicals like Mamma Mia! and Into the Woods (for which she received one of her many Oscar nominations).

    In the Woods was a poor delivery. I mean she’s done great in other movies. But musicals isn’t really her thing. I’m not sure about Kidman either. I think Ariana’s voice really fits musical, but her role is too minor to make an impact on the success of the movie.

    If you ask me, Streep had a much worse delivery in Mamma Mia!. Nicole Kidman has done two movie musicals before as well like Moulin Rouge! and Nine.

    I know her filmography.What I’m saying is they could have picked someone else, from what I’ve seen and heard the role is not too demanding vocally.

    Meryl Streep will get an Oscar nomination simply because she’s Meryl Streep.

    I’m really curious to see Murphy’s take on the musical. It has the potential to be *very* Oscar-baity (in a good way) and emotional.

    That said, I think the soundtrack will be what makes a difference. I’m hoping Ariana will write something emotional for Emma’s character. They need a strong Best Original Song contender.

    If you’ve seen The Prom, Nicole Kidman’s part is actually not that small. It’s probably the same or a little bigger than her supporting part in Lion.
