Emmy Award-winning "This Is Us" and "Black Panther" star Sterling K. Brown is teaming up with another hot commodity in Hollywood, "It Comes at Night" director Trey Edward Shults, for a movie musical.

Show biz bible Variety reports that Brown -- who was a member of the Guthrie Experience training program in 2000 and acted in the theater's 2005 "Intimate Apparel" -- will star with Lucas Hedges ("Lady Bird") in "Waves." A romantic drama, "Waves" also has booked composers Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor, who won an Oscar for their "The Social Network" score and have followed up with a series of thrillers, including "Gone Girl" and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."

Brown visited the Guthrie in February during the Super Bowl, to check out the facility and meet with current acting students.
