Oppenheimer Plans “Happy Days” Musical

“The Act Of Killing” and “The Look Of Silence” director Joshua Oppenheimer is reportedly working on a musical loosely based on the famed Samuel Beckett play “Happy Days”.

The play deals with a woman who is buried up to her waist and follows her through the day with her husband. Influence will also be taken from the classic “Umbrellas Of Cherbourg” as Oppenheimer says: “there are no good or bad characters and the tragedy emerges from the interactions of people.”

Before he gets around to that though, Oppenheimer will do another documentary but will reveal zero details on it at the moment other than production will begin this year.
