Adorable "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" co-writer/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are in talks with Disney Pictures to develop and direct the comedy "Bob the Musical" reports Risky Biz Blog.

The story follows a regular guy who, after a blow to the head, suddenly can hear the inner songs of everyone’s hearts as his reality is instantly turned into a musical much to his dismay.

"Hairspray" composer Marc Shaiman is writing the music and a new writer will shortly be hired do more work on the script. The pair will work the project around their commitment to shoot Sony's "21 Jump Street" feature film reboot.
