Anyone out there interested in a period musical? No? Ok, then, anyone interested in a period musical directed by James Bobin, man responsible for The Muppets and Da Ali G Show? Yeah, I thought so, guess we’re all glad to hear this guy is so busy these days. And even more – that Disney is currently in negotiations to acquire the project titled Tribyville from Gary Sanchez.
Unfortunately, at this moment the only thing we know is that Bobin will direct Tribyville musical from his own script, and that the whole thing could be acquired by Disney from Will Ferrell and Adam Mckay’s Gary Sanchez Productions. Details about the upcoming project have been kept under wraps.
Nothing to be surprised about. After all, Bobin’s yet untitled Muppets sequel (currently in pre-production) is still without an official release date, and on the other hand, Bobin also has that Agent Zigzag film (for New Line and Playtone Pictures) on his plate.
Tribyville is something completely fresh, but let’s hope that we’ll soon have more updates to share with you!
