Alan Menken developing Mrs Doubtfire musical for Broadway

24 January 2015 2:43 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A Mrs Doubtfire musical is in development.

Composer Alan Menken told Entertainment Weekly Radio that the project is in the "early stages" of development.

"It's in its early stages, and that's probably all I can say," he said, adding: "We're really enjoying working on it."

Menken has previously created the music for Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Enchanted, Little Shop of Horrors and Sister Act the Musical.

Harvey Fierstein, who starred in the film with Robin Williams as his make-up artist brother, will write the script for the musical.

Mrs Doubtfire was released in 1993, and also starred Sally Field, Mara Wilson and Pierce Brosnan.

Talk of a film sequel was halted after Williams's death last year.

A 'Mrs. Doubtfire' Musical Is Coming

23 January 2015 5:50 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, composer Alan Menken, who is probably most famous for working on Disney animated classics "The Little Mermaid," "Aladdin," and "Beauty and the Beast" (in addition to "Little Shop of Horrors," "Enchanted" and the recent, weirdly overlooked television series "Galavant"), admitted that he is turning "Mrs. Doubtfire" into a Broadway musical.

While Menken will be composing the score, David Zippel, who worked with Menken on Disney's "Hercules," will be writing the lyrics and Harvey Fierstein, who was in the movie and is something of a Broadway legend (having written books for "Kinky Boots" and "Newsies," among many others), will be writing the book. Otherwise, Menken was pretty cagey. "It's going very well, it's in its early stages, and that's probably all I can say," Menken told Entertainment Weekly. "We're really enjoying working on it."

The original "Mrs. Doubtfire," released in 1993 by 20th Century Fox, starred Robin Williams and Sally Field. »

Barbra Streisand to be Honored by American Society of Cinematographers

14 January 2015 8:22 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The American Society of Cinematographers has pegged Barbra Streisand to receive its 2015 Board of Governors Award, to be given to the actress-filmmaker-recording artist at the organization’s 29th annual awards gala Feb. 15 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

The Board of Governors citation is meant to recognize “extraordinary achievements in advancing the art and craft of filmmaking,” according to the Asc, but it has also allowed the 96-year-old society of upper-echelon below-the-liners to bring some extra star power to the party, and for the male-centric brotherhood to mix it up a little. Streisand’s female predecessors include Sally Field and Julia Roberts, but her multidisciplinary efforts have overlapped, and exceeded, most of the others, including Warren Beatty, Sydney Pollack, Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese and Christopher Nolan.

If Streisand is one of the most versatile, and decorated, entertainers of the last century (she’s that rare Egot winner, »

Russell Brand Doc to Open 2015 SXSW, Plus Six Other Films Announced

8 January 2015 12:39 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This March will mark my fourth straight year attending the South by Southwest Film Festival. Every year creates many memorable moments, whether it be seeing the world premiere of Short Term 12 when it was on no one's radar or seeing Iko Uwais and Cecep Arif Rahman fight on stage when there was a problem with the screening file for The Raid 2, I always have a good time seeing as many movies I can in a short amount of time. And I am happy to be covering it for the first time as press for RopeofSilicon. The opening night films for SXSW have been hit and miss. My first year it was The Cabin in the Woods, and unfortunately, they cannot all be that great. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and Chef followed after that. This year, SXSW has chosen the documentary Brand: A Second Coming as the opening night film. »

'Mrs. Doubtfire' House Struck by Arsonist

7 January 2015 6:36 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The iconic Mrs. Doubtfire house which is located in San Francisco was struck by an arsonist late on Monday. Made famous by the comedy, the property has served as a memorial for the late Robin Williams since his death last year. Damage was limited, as the owner was able to put the fire out before it got out of control.

The incident happened at 8:00 pm on Monday. The owner, a doctor, believes the fire was started by a disgruntled patient. Fire officials believe the arsonist doused the doormat in a flammable liquid before igniting it on fire.

Before his death, Robin Williams was planning a return as Daniel Hillard, an actor and divorcee who disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend time with his children held in custody by his former wife. The location was likely to be used again in Mrs. Doubtfire 2, but the project, of course, »
