Taye Diggs will join Topher Grace in a new film musical comedy titled “One Shot,” for Brillstein Entertainment, Dark Factory Entertainment and AG Studios.
To be directed by music video director Isaac Rentz, from a script penned by Gerry De Leon and Greg Lisi, the story centers on a failed Broadway singer-turned-production manager (played by Grace) who, on opening night, must save the production by wrangling his eccentric cast and crew before chaos ensues.
Diggs will play a character named Malcolm, a flamboyant actor.
That’s all we know about the character thus far.
Grace is co-producing the film, by the way.
Production is set to begin in December in Mexico City.
And if you’re wondering, Diggs certainly isn’t new to musicals; he co-starred in the stage version of “Rent” and appeared in the film version of “Chicago.”
He can currently be seen starring in TNT’s “Murder in the First” and on the CBS drama “The Good Wife.”
