Todd Graff is set to direct the coming-of-age dramedy, Will for Walden Media; he's also re-writing the original screenplay.

The film centers on a high school outcast and a popular girl who form an unlikely bond through their shared love of music. The Hollywood Reporter says assembling a like-minded crew of misfits, the friends form a rock group and perform in the battle of the bands competition at their school.

No production schedule has been set for Will.
