Pharrell Williams is developing a big screen musical about his life.

The Happy singer is teaming up with Tony Award-winning director Michael Mayer on Atlantis, which will be produced by Pharrell and his partner Mimi Valdes. Martin Hynes will write the script for the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie has been described as a musical “Romeo and Juliet-style story inspired by Williams’ childhood in Virginia Beach, Virginia.”

It is unclear who will play Pharrell, or when filming will begin.

Pharrell has been becoming more involved in film lately and recently produced the Oscar-nominated movie Hidden Figures. When announcing his involvement with the project last year (16), Williams revealed he was thrilled to be a part of the movie because of the historical story it told about three African-American female National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) employees, who helped astronaut John Glenn become the first American to orbit the Earth in 1962.
