THR is reporting that Michael Penn (Girls, Boogie Nights, Masters of Sex, Sunshine Cleaning, The Last Kiss) is set to compose and perform original music for a sequel to last year’s Disney+ original movie Stargirl. He will also serve as the executive music producer on the film, which will be directed by Julia Hart (I’m Your Woman, Fast Color) and star Grace VanderWaal and Elijah Richardson. VanderWaal is also contributing new songs to the YA drama, which follows Stargirl’s journey out of Mica and into a bigger world of music, dreams and possibility. Hart is also co-writing the screenplay with Jordan Horowitz. Horowitz (La La Land, The Kids Are Alright) is also producing the project for Original Headquarters, alongside Ellen Goldsmith-Vein & Lee Stollman (The Maze Runner, Life of Crime) for Gotham Group. Last year’s original film featured songs by VanderWaal and an original score by Rob Simonsen. No word yet on a production start date for the sequel.
