"Dreamcoat" Becomes An Animated Musical

By Garth Franklin Wednesday February 5th 2014 06:10PM

Elton John's Rocket Pictures has scored the rights to produce an animated musical film based on Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's stage version of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat".

Based on the Joseph story in the Book of Genesis, the musical has been both a critical and commercial success over the past three decades after humble beginnings as a pop cantata penned for schools.

John will executive produce with Rice and Webber, but no writer or director is yet.
