The film will also feature original music including five songs co-written by Miyata and Justin Jones as well as an additional song co-written with Richard Rudolph.
Wilson has starred on the hit ABC medical drama since its beginning. Recently it has been confirmed that Grey’s Anatomy has been renewed for a fifteenth season, making it the longest-running drama in the history of the network.
