Margot Robbie, who was Oscar-nominated for her performance in I, Tonya, will produce the period musical Big Gay Jamboree with her LuckyChap Entertainment production company, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Marla Mindelle (Broadway's Cinderella and Sister Act) and Jonathan Parks-Ramage will pen the script for the film. Described as a cross between The Book of Mormon and Oklahom!, it will center on a young woman who wakes up in a strange town to realize she is living in a 1940s musical.
