Merit Leighton Eyed For 'High School Musical 4' Lead

Merit Leighton may be breaking out into song soon…

Rumor has it that the 13-year-old actress, who you might now from Sofia The First as Lucinda the Witch, is in the running for one of the female leads for High School Musical 4.

Disney announced earlier this month that they were holding an open casting call for the fourth film in the popular franchise, which launched the careers of Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Corbin Bleu and more.

Merit would be up for one of the three female leads:

Erin, the badass soccer player who strives for excellence—and the only girl on the boys’ team; Nathalie is East High’s biggest fan, a loyal, outgoing cheerleader and big-hearted BFF to Erin; or Tamara is East High’s former queen bee, who is attempting to climb back up the social ladder and reclaim all the attention for herself.

High School Musical 4, will continue the story of the global sensation and introduce new East High Wildcats and their cross-town school rivals, the West High Knights and be directed and choreographed by Jeffrey Hornaday.
