Richie is currently on the panel of judges for Disney ABC’s American Idol, a singing reality show. As per sources, he froze his dates for All Night Long in January this year. However, a notable thing about the upcoming project is that it won’t be a biopic kind of a thing. It’s going to be more like a movie musical from Lionel Richie song Catalog.

Speculations say that it can also be some kind of tribute to Lionel Richie’s contribution to the world of music. But, since Disney and Richie have not confirmed anything specific about what it will be like, it would be better to wait for an announcement. Stay tuned to know more about All Night Long.
