Ashley shared, “In the original, you know, Robyn Lively didnâ€™t sing at all, even though other girls performed. But the studio said ‘Hey, youâ€™re a singer, right?’ They reworked the script so it can be more of a musical. The plan is to start filming at the end of the year…you can expect it will be a lot more modern than the original.”
