Tom Cruise to play the lead in Walt Disney’s, Bob: The Musical?

August 9th, 2015 by James Campbell Comments


I have to admit, I like the sounds of this. Tom Cruise is up for the lead role is Walt Disney’s, Bob: The Musical.

For those who are unaware, this film tells the story of a regular guy who, after a blow to the head, suddenly can hear the inner songs of everyone’s heart as his reality is instantly turned into a musical, much to his dismay.

The film is scheduled to have its songs written by Britt McKenzie (Flight of the Conchords and The Muppets). The film has been in varying stages of production since 2004, and I am pretty excited about it. The concept sounds like it is open to a number of humorous moments, and say what you will about Tom Cruise, few actors are as willing to do anything the way he is.

As of this moment in time, there is no release date for the film, but hopefully it will not be too far off. As a big fan of musicals, I would like to see another make its way to the silver screen.

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
