In late January at a shoppingplex in Provo, Spain Utah, MTV will begin filming The American Mall, an original musical from High School Musical producers Bill Borden and Barry Rosenbush, says the Hollywood Reporter. Eyed for a summer premiere, the song-and-dancer stars Bulgarian actress Nina Dobrev as a singing/songwriting high school graduate desperate to save her mother's music store and hold onto the musically gifted young janitor she loves (played by Rob Mayes). Now for a name you recognize: The O.C.'s Autumn Reeser will play Dobrev's rich-bitch adversary whose folks are trying to shutter the mall.

The American Mall pitch actually predates HSM, and was originally (and amazingly, considering what I detailed above) envisioned as a feature film.
