Vanessa Hudgens to star in Rent!

Vanessa Hudgens has reportedly been lined up to appear in a new production of Rent.

According to Access Hollywood, How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris has already signed up to direct the musical.

Hudgens is said to have landed the role of Mimi, an HIV-positive exotic dancer and drug addict.

“She came in for a work session and I must say, Vanessa really impressed,” Harris reportedly told BroadwayWorld. “She looks amazing, has great vocal chops and seems really committed to honouring the somewhat iconic role of Mimi.”

“I look forward to audiences seeing a dark, edgy and very different side of Vanessa Hudgens this August.”

The production is scheduled to run for three nights in August at the Hollywood Bowl.
