music news 12/06/2020

Lionel Richie has a new film on the way! And it's all thanks to Disney.

The working title for the film is 'All Night Long' - a nod to one of the singer's most popular songs.

The Lionel-based film is currently in development at Walt Disney Studios, with Lionel serving as a producer on the project, alongside his manager Bruce Eskowitz.

Sources say the film could be compared to that of ABBA's Mamma Mia! films, in terms of its jukebox musical nature.

The movie is still in pre-production, so a planned release date has yet to be announced.

It seems Lionel Richie is keen to dive straight back into the entertainment industry, with this project following on from his remake of 'We Are The World'.
