Danielle Fishel and Lance Bass are working on a movie about their past relationship

Real life has inspired the new project by Danielle Fishel and Lance Bass.

The former ‘N Sync member was a guest on the star’s latest episode of “Boy Meets World.”Pod meets the world‘ podcast with former co-stars Rider Strong and Will Friedle. During their conversation, Bass, 43, and Fishel, 41, shared how their past relationship inspired them to write a movie about it.

“Lance and I are actually working on a movie about our love story and about our prom experience,” Fishel revealed, adding that “for those who don’t know,” they dated for about a year during their senior year. when she was in “Boy Meets World”.

“And Lance came with me to my high school prom, my Calabasas high school prom. He was my date,” he continued.

The story will focus on a boy’s struggle with his sexuality after going to prom with a young woman and his coming out story. Lauren Lapkus and Mary Holland are writing the script.

“The reason we wanted to make this prom story into a movie, I think a lot of people can relate to that story; so many people in the LGBT community, their prom night was the night they were like, ‘Oh, wait a minute. This can’t happen anymore,’” Bass said. “This was the catalyst for me to start accepting myself, which took a long time after that, but it was definitely the first straw that broke the camel’s back.”

In real life, Fishel recalled how “they had a wonderful relationship, very warm and loving, but it was completely lacking in intimacy, intimacy in the romantic sense.” He eventually broke up with her after her prom.

“Lance and I had a hotel room booked and I had a vision of what that night would be and Lance was very nervous about what my vision would be for that night,” he said. “That’s actually the night that Lance is talking about, where he felt like he was hurting me by not being honest with himself or anyone else about what was going on in his life, so it was kind of the impetus for him to say, ‘Me’. I’m going to end our relationship.’”

During their conversation, Fishel recalled first meeting the singer during an ABC event for the network’s popular primetime television programming block TGIF, where ‘N Sync was being featured. At the event, Bass recalled wanting to get Fishel’s number.

“And the way he got my number that night, my whole meeting with Lance… it felt like a movie, which is part of the reason we’re going to make it a movie,” Fishel recalled. “I remember the whole night talking to (him and Justin Timberlake)…and I remember thinking, like, ‘Hmm, I wonder if this is going well with Lance.’ I wonder if he’ll try to get my number at the end of this.’”

After waiting all night to see if Bass would ask for his number, he watched the boy band get on their bus and almost drive off.

“I turned around and it was Justin,” he said between laughs. “Justin comes running up to me and says, ‘Danielle, I need your number.’ I was like, ‘What?!’ and he was like, ‘It’s for Lance,’ and I was like, ‘Oh, okay, yeah.’”

A couple of days later, Bass called her and left a voicemail, which included Timberlake yelling in the background how nervous he was about calling her.

“I thought I was going to marry Lance. I had imagined our future,” said the actor. “And then when she broke up with me, I couldn’t get away and I held out hope for too long that Lance and I were going to get back together and get married and have a family.”

Friedle then asked Bass why he broke up with her, to which the singer jokingly replied, “Oh, she knows what she did.”

“Turns out I’m not Lance’s type,” Fishel added. Bass came out as gay in 2006. He is currently married to Michael Turchin and they are the parents of twins Alexander and Violet, whom they welcomed via surrogate in October 2021.

Fishel is married to Jensen Karp. They share two children, sons Adler, 3, Keaton, 1.
