Danny Boyle has revealed that not only is he considering an animated film, but has already taken some preliminary steps to develop a musical with the English band I Am Kloot.
He tells MTV News that “I talked to I Am Kloot about doing a small musical – It would be original with the Kloot guys writing the songs. It’s very difficult.”
“I think it’s the most difficult thing to do as a film [but] it’s the Holy Grail if you can do it [right]. I would love to do a musical. I’ve done on stage plays with substantial musical sections in it and I loved it. I love editing to beat and contradicting the beat. I’m useless on music technically but I know when some thing is good and not.” says Boyle.
Regarding what the musical would be about, or what kind of style it would be shot in, Boyle remained quiet. He did admit that he loved Tim Burton’s recent “Sweeney Todd” adaptation.
He also says that he has an idea for a second sequel to “28 Days Later” but “I’ve got to present it and see what people think really because it might be silly really.”
