MIGUEL will be STARRING in a movie that’s produced by JOHN LEGEND. This news is brought to you by my dreams.

The film is described as a musical romantic drama that’ll explode your heart. It’s directed by Nabil Elderkin, whose resumé includes gorgeous music videos like FKA Twigs’ “Two Weeks,” Frank Ocean’s “Pyramids,” and tons of work with Kanye West.

According to The Wrap, the still-untitled movie:

...follows 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. The story will be told significantly through music, which Legend will curate.

John Legend told me this last night before putting it in a statement:

“Mike, Ty and I are really excited about producing our long time friend and collaborator Nabil Elderkin’s directorial debut. He’s a major talent and being able to cast Miguel in the male lead puts us in the position to really build an incredible film with strong musical elements. We look forward to working with this dream team we’ve assembled to deliver something special.”

They start shooting in Philly this September, so guess where I’ll be?

This could either be fantastic or terrible, depending on Miguel's acting skills.

Also, look at his girlfriend. She's the most beautiful creature ever.
