“Flight of the Conchords” star Bret McKenzie is being brought on board to pen songs for Disney’s long gestating musical comedy “Bob the Musical”.
Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon is in talks to work on the film which Michel Hazanavicius (“The Artist”) is set to direct. Tripp Vinson, Chris Bender, JC Spink and Beau Flynn are producing.
Tom Cruise is circling the lead role of a regular guy who, after an accident, can suddenly hear the inner songs of everyone’s heart as his reality is instantly turned into a musical – much to his dismay.
McKenzie wrote songs for “The Muppets” movie and won an Oscar for best original song with “Man or Muppet.”
