American Idol alum Adam Lambert has recently finished filming a new acting project.

Adam has starred along with Geena Davis, in producer Sofia Coppola’s Fairyland adaptation for American Zoetrope.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that director Andrew Durham has just wrapped production on his debut feature. Coppola and American Zoetrope acquired the screen rights to Alysia Abbott’s Fairyland: A Memoir of My Father in 2013.

The story is a coming-of-age tale of Abbott growing up with her single father–widowed poet and gay activist Steve Abbott–amid the AIDS epidemic in 1970s and 1980s San Francisco.

Adam, along with Davis, Cody Fern, Bella Murphy and newcomer Nessa Dougherty topline the movie adaptation. Veteran fashion and commercial photographer Durham wrote the feature, which he directed and produced along with Coppola, Megan Carlson, Siena Oberman, Greg Lauritano and Laure Sudreau.

Arclight Films is handling worldwide sales, while ICM is taking part in securing a domestic sale.

The singer recently performed for Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee “Party at the Palace” as frontman for Queen. The band will spend June and July touring Europe, including the UK, Amsterdam, Denmark, Italy, Spain, France, Norway, Finland and more.
