Lisa Kudrow and Liam Aiken have come aboard to star in “Will,” the musical coming-of-age dramedy that Walden Media and Summit Entertainment will co-finance.
David Bowie also is in talks to join the cast, which includes Vanessa Hudgens, Aly Michalka and Scott Porter.
Written by Todd Graff and Josh Cagan, the script 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.
Aiken is playing the title character, while Kudrow will play his mother.
