Sharing a first-look photo of the stacked cast, which features Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington, Andrew Rannels, Keegan-Michael Key and James Corden, Murphy lauded his “icon-packed” troupe for banding together in difficult times to complete the project.
“A group of true troopers who buckled up and finished shooting during COVID so we could give everybody an inspirational aspirational story that we all need right now,” he wrote, adding, “Christmas is right around the corner…”
The film is an adaptation of the 2018 Broadway show, and tells the story of four stage stars who help a high school lesbian take her girlfriend to the prom in a small, conservative town.
It’ll mark Murphy’s latest installment in his major deal with Netflix, following the success of The Politician and Hollywood.
His other Netflix projects, Ratched and an all-gay remake of The Boys in the Band, will also premiere soon.
