It's no surprise that John Legend is a brilliant songwriter.
The singer is not only a nine-time Grammy winner, but he and Common also took home the Oscar for Best Song for Glory from the movie Selma!
Now, it looks like the 36-year-old will be producing an untitled musical-romantic drama that's set to star Grammy-winning artist Miguel!

The story follows a former one-hit wonder who is hired to coach an aspiring singer auditioning for a singing competition show. During this journey, he regains the love and passion he lost for music due to his dwindled career.
The story will be told mostly through music, and is expected to start production in Philadelphia.
There's a good chance Legend will be writing some of the music for the film since he is a longtime friend and collaborator with Nabil Elderkin, who is set to direct the flick.
Hmmm, a once famous star who reignites the flame of his lost career? Could this end up being a musical version of Birdman? We see you, Oscars!
