The Young and Restless' Tammin Sursok has landed the lead role in the Nickelodeon High School Musical competitor Spectacular! Reuters is reporting.
Spectatular! "Centers on a preppy high school student (Australian Tammin Sursok) who is part of the school's Spectacular! choir. The group is in sad shape, with its most talented members either having graduated or been stolen away by a rival squad. The teen sees salvation in a cocky rocker (Canadian Nolan Funk), who reluctantly joins Spectacular! to win a money prize that would finance his rock 'n' roll dreams. But the rocker doesn't factor in falling for the preppy girl.
Robert Iscove ("She's All That") is directing the film, which will shoot in Vancouver.
Nick stresses that Spectacular! is not a classic musical. The songs in the movie will be performance-based rather than featuring characters suddenly breaking out into song like in Disney's High School Musical."
