Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
co-writers/directors Phil Lord
and Christopher Miller
are in talks with Walt Disney Pictures
to develop and direct the comedy Bob the Musical . They are also scheduled to direct Sony's 21 Jump Street , starring Jonah Hill
and Channing Tatum
. That is expected to start in the spring, so Bob the Musical would presumably follow. "Bob" centers on a mild-mannered man who suddenly hears the 'inner song' of people's hearts after being struck on the head. Marc Shaiman
is writing the music and lyrics. Lord and Miller plan to bring on a new writer to do more work on the script.
