Paul Feig Tunes Up A Musical
For 20th Century Fox

Paul-Feig-Tunes-Up-A-Musical

Though he’s usually been found directing comedies such as Bridesmaids and The Heat, Paul Feig is planning a musical, with 20th Century Fox picking up a new project for him to produce and potentially make.

The plot is being kept quiet according to Variety’s report on the nascent film, though we do know that Feig came up with the concept – an original idea – and Spellbound editor Yana Gorskaya and short story writer Maia Rossini have created the initial pitch for an ensemble piece.

Feig, who may have had his musical bug fed by directing a trailer for this year’s Oscar ceremony that featured host Ellen DeGeneres dancing down a street to Fitz And The Tantrums’ The Walker, will likely wait and see how the script/music turns out before making a final decision.

Besides, it’s not like he’s not busy with other things already – he’s a producer on the new Peanuts animated film, and is getting set to shoot spy comedy Susan Cooper with regular collaborator Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne and Jude Law. He’s off to Budapest soon to start work on the film, which will be out here on May 22, 2015.
