Walt Disney Studios has provided us with the title treatment and three first look stills at its upcoming romcom Prom starring Aimee Teegarden, Thomas McDonell, Danielle Campbell, Yin Chang, Kylie Bunbury, Nicholas Braun, Jared Kusnitz, Jonathan Keltz, De’Vaughn Nixon, Nolan Sotillo, Cameron Monaghan, Joe Adler, Janelle Ortiz and Raini Rodriguez.
Walt Disney Studios has just provided us with the official synopsis for its upcoming teen dramedy Prom, written by Katie Wech. Wech, who has only Prom and a couple of episodes of the cable television program Stephen King’s Dead Zone under her credit belt, is also listed by IMDB as working on Wings, which appears to be another Disney project, based on the novel by Aprilynne Pike and set to star Miley Cyrus. The first in a series of supernatural romances for tweens, Wings centers around a fifteen year old named Laurel who ends up learning that her awkward stages are a bit more to deal with than most.
Walt Disney Studios made some announcements earlier today regarding its upcoming slate. Fearing sparkling vampires, Mike Wazowski and Sulley will be making their triumphant return to the silver scream in Monsters Inc. 2 a whopping two weeks earlier now on November 2, 2012.
Despite the tremendous buzz and many supporters, it appears that the already-rescheduled Beauty and the Beast 3D may not make it to theaters in the United States after-all as it has been completely removed from the upcoming release slate. Originally expected to be released in 2010 and then in 2011, the special edition of the film is slated for a limited release overseas later this year.
Variety has reported interest by Walt Disney Studios in producing Prom, a comedy written by television writer Katie Wech. Citing the success of High School Musical as inspiration, the teen romp is said to be written in the vein of film legend John Hughes or Cameron Crowe. Quick to note that the project is still in development stages, Variety suggests Disney is looking at a way to produce the film for only five to ten million, significantly less than even the aforementioned Disney Channel Movie cost, most notably by casting virtual unknowns for the leads, thus heightening the film’s chances at churning a profit.
