We know the Maroon 5 frontman can sing. Now it's time to see if he can act.
Adam Levine will hit the notes and will hopefully also hit the beats as he signs on for a lead role in "Can a Song Save Your Life?," according to Deadline.
The musical drama follows a boy (Levine) and girl (Keira Knightley) as they move to New York with big dreams of music careers. After he dumps her for a solo contract, she is discovered singing at a local bar by a down-on-his-luck record producer (Mark Ruffalo).
'cause, you know, "discovered by a record producer at a bar" is the kind of stuff that happens in musicals!
"Can a Song Save Your Life?" is the latest from director John Carney, whose 2006 film, "Once," was recently adapted into the Broadway stage production that swept the Tony Awards earlier this week.
Adam Levine is best known for being the lead singer of Maroon 5 and a judge on "The Voice," but he seems to now be concentrating on a full-throttle segue into acting. Besides scoring this featured role in "Song," he's also recently signed on to a multi-episode arc in the second season of "American Horror Story." Guess we'll also be seeing if he can scream as well as sing!
"Can a Song Save Your Life?" will commence with production later this summer.
