A musical romance drama is coming down the pipeline for Grammy-winning singers John Legend and Miguel.

Legend, who won an Oscar for the "Selma" song "Glory," will produce the musical through a partnership between his Get Lifted Film Co. and Furst Films.

Miguel is in talks to star in the production in the lead role. Variety reports his character would be, "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."

Legend will also curate the soundtrack. 

The film will start production in September in Philadelphia.
