Pharrell Williams musical biopic on the way from Fox

A new musical biopic inspired by singer/songwriter Pharrell Williams is on the way from 20th Century Fox.

Dubbed Atlantis, the project is expected to focus on Williams’ younger life in Virginia Beach, with a range of songs.

It will also boast a Romeo and Juliet style story, which fans will be able to enjoy when the film hits the big screen.

Michael Mayer, known for his Broadway work on Spring Awakening and American Idiot, is set to direct the film, while Martin Hynes, who is currently writing Toy Story 4, will pen the musical movie.
