Holy Broadway! Batman: The Musical is Coming
Friday, August 30, 2002 7:31 CDT
The New York Post is reporting today that there will soon be a Batman: The Musical, to be directed by none other than Tim Burton.
HOLY Broadway! "Batman: The Musical" has finally landed a director - Tim Burton. Warner Brothers, which is producing the multimillion-dollar musical, has been courting Burton, who directed the 1989 "Batman" movie as well as the 1992 sequel "Batman Returns," for over a year.
The studio sealed the deal last week, theater sources say, after Burton had several long and productive meetings with bookwriter David Ives and composer Jim Steinman.
Reached yesterday, Steinman said: "We're thrilled he's going to do it. David and I floundered around for a year trying to figure out how to musicalize Batman. Then we looked at Tim's original movie and thought, that's it."
Steinman said Burton "has already got a list of 20 designers from all over the world he wants to talk to about the production."
