The R&B singer gets into film.

Variety reports that John Legend’s production company is one of the partners behind an untitled “musical romantic drama” that is in negotiations with Miguel to star.

The film would feature the ‘Adorn’ singer as a “former one hit wonder who regains his love for music when he is hired to coach an aspiring singer for her audition on a singing competition show.”

It will be directed by photographer-director Nabil Elderkin, who has helmed music videos for Legend, Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj and more; he directed our favorite video of 2014, FKA Twigs’ ‘Two Weeks’.

The film will start production in September. No word on if/how this will affect Miguel’s forthcoming album; last we heard, it was 90% done, due in the second quarter of 2015 and could feature Hudson Mohawke.
