Ansel Elgort is taking his musical side to the big screen.

The 20-year-old actor will take on the lead role in Van Cliburn, based on the piano prodigy, Deadline reports.

Van Cliburn “emerged from out of nowhere to win the Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition in Moscow. It was the first time the tournament was held, and was organized by the USSR after they had caught up to the U.S. in the nuclear arms race and completed the first successful space launch of Sputnik.”

Ansel will play the title character in his formative years. The real Van Cliburn passed away from bone cancer late last year.
