With the new movie musical Frozen shattering box office records left and right this winter, Disney is making the wise decision to move forward with another onscreen tuner they’ve had in the works for years: Bob the Musical. Allan Loeb, who penned the 2012 film adaptation of Rock of Ages, has signed on to write screenplay for the new animated movie musical, joining Frozen composing duo Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, who will write the music and lyrics, according to The Hollywood Reporter. No casting or filming dates have been announced. Bob the Musical tells the story of a regular guy (named, uh, Bob) who, after getting hit in the head, can suddenly hear the inner songs sung by the hearts of all of his family and friends. He’s not happy about it, but Bob’s life has become a musical. That all sounds awesome, Disney, but where does Idina Menzel fit in (hey, we can dream, can’t we)? Disney has been brainstorming Bob since 2004, with a variety of composers, directors and writers attached. Adam Shankman, Phil Lord and Chris Miller have been rumored to be involved with the film throughout the years. In addition to Rock of Ages, Loeb has penned the screenplays for 21, Things We Lost in the Fire, The Switch, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, The Dilemma, Just Go With It, Here Comes the Boom and So Undercover. Lopez is the Tony-winning co-creator of Avenue Q and The Book of Mormon. His wife, Anderson-Lopez, wrote songs for Disney’s Finding Nemo: The Musical. View Comments
