Disney Attends Its Own “Prom”

Aimee Teegarden, Yin Chang, Thomas McDonell, Danielle Campbell, Nolan Sotillo, Jared Kusnitz, Nicholas Braun, Ben Esler, Kylie Bunbury and DeVaughn Nixon have all signed up for high school comedy “Prom” for Disney Pictures says Variety.

The story follows a group of teens as they prepare for the big end-of-the-year dance and is said to be in the tone of John Hughes’ classic 80’s teen angst comedies. The studio hopes the $5-10 million film will launch of a franchise of “High School Musical” proportions.

Joe Nussbaum directs from a script by Katie Wech. Ted Griffin and Justin Springer will produce.
