Kerry Washington Joins Netflix Movie Musical 'The Prom'

Kerry Washington has reportedly joined the star-studded cast of the upcoming movie musical The Prom, which will be released by Netflix.

The Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated actress is joining a cast that includes Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, James Corden, Keegan-Michael Key, Andrew Rannells, and Awkwafina.

Ariana Grande was rumored to have been cast in the movie, though some reports have said she had to drop out because of scheduling conflicts with her tour.

There’s no word yet on who Kerry will be playing in the movie. Deadline first reported the news.

The Prom is based on the Broadway musical of the same name. Here is the synopsis: “After career-ending reviews, Dee Dee Allen (Streep) and Barry Glickman (Corden) decide — along with Broadway babies Angie Dickinson (Kidman) and Trent Oliver (Rannells) — to champion a cause to rehabilitate their careers. They find one in Emma, a high school senior in Indiana who isn’t allowed to take her girlfriend to the prom.”

Ryan Murphy is directing the movie!
