-According to Variety, Disney is looking to to recreate the success it had with the “High School Musical” franchise. The company is developing Prom, a comedy that revolves around a group of teens prepping for the big dance.
Unlike “High School Musical,” the project is not expected to be a musical, but they are looking at it as a potential franchise. Disney is exploring the idea of casting complete unknown actors to star as the nine lead roles. The tone is said to be similar to the types of teen comedies by John Hughes or Cameron Crowe.
Disney is also still working on the fourth installment of “High School Musical.”
What do you think of the idea?
