Pharrell to develop "Romeo & Juliet" style musical inspired by his childhood

Pharrell and Fox Studios connect for new musical experience.


A musical film inspired by Pharrell Williams is in the works and Fox Studios has a hand in its development.

As Hollywood Reporter reveals, the project, titled "Atlantis," will be "a Romeo and Juliet style story inspired by his childhood in Virginia Beach." The hitmaker will team with Tony Award-winning Broadway director Michael Mayer to direct the film.

This will mark Williams' second production with Fox, with the first being the Oscar nominated "Hidden Figures."
