Bandslam is a musical-romantic comedy film produced by Walden Media and Summit Entertainment, the film is centered around very different teenagers, all with a shared love of music. This film was previously titled Will and Rock On. It stars Gaelan Connell, Lisa Kudrow, Alyson Michalka and Vanessa Hudgens. Walden Media has finished filming the movie, which started in Austin, Texas, with additional scenes filmed in New York City.

Plot: Teenager Will Burton lives in his head, and his head is filled with music. When his mother, Karen Burton, gets a new job in New Jersey, Will starts his junior year at a new school only to find the old cliques still apply, but rock-n-roll rules the scene. Perpetually a misfit, Will strikes up a friendship with like-minded outsider Sa5m (the 5 is silent). They are both surprised when the school’s “it” girl, Charlotte recruits Will to help assemble a band to compete in “Bandslam,” a battle of the bands that is “Texas High School Football BIG.” Charlotte’s ex-boyfriend Ben Wheatly is poised to win with his band Glory Dogs Springsteen wannabes down to their hats. For the first time in his life, Will finds he is uniquely suited to not only participate in something, but to truly make a difference.
