Leona Lewis

Here is some nice and happy bubblegum film news to make your teeth rot – X Factor winner and Princess of the soppy ballad Leona Lewis is set to make her acting debut in the latest project from STREETDANCE creators Max Giwa and Dania Pasquini.

Originally titled WALKING ON SUNSHINE, HOLIDAY! follows Maddie as she is preparing to marry her Spanish tutor Raf, but unknown to Maddie, her sister Taylor is her husband to be’s ex girlfriend. Of course the role should not be much of a tall order for Lewis, as HOLIDAY! is being billed as a British musical which will include hits from the 80s with artists like  Wham!, Madonna and Human League all included in the soundtrack.

Other cast members that have been confirmed include Annabel Scholey, Hannah Arterton, Giulio Berruti, Greg Wise and comedian Katy Brand. The film is being geared up for a Summer 2014 release via Vertigo Films.
