The Adorn hitmaker has been tapped to lead the cast in the as-yet-untitled project, a romantic drama about a one-hit wonder who rediscovers his passion for music after he is hired to coach an aspiring singer auditioning for a reality TV show.

Legend's longtime collaborator, music video director Nabil Elderkin, will take charge of the movie, which will serve as his first feature film under his pal's Get Lifted Film banner.

Production is scheduled to take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in September (15).
