New Year, January 1 (ANI): Oscar-winning American director Steven Soderbergh is planning a rock ”n” roll 3D musical about Cleopatra.
He is teaming up with Hugh Jackman and Catherine Zeta-Jones for the musical.
“Our version (of the Cleopatra story) will be like an Elvis musical in 3D. It’’s a total rock ”n” roll, 1966 aesthetic - like ”Viva Las Vegas” meets ”Tommy”,” the New York Post quoted Soderbergh as telling Britain’’s Independent.
“I”ve wanted my whole career to make a musical. And the 3D makes it more challenging but makes it more fun,” he added.
Soderbergh’’s most recent work was the 41/2-hour Che, which was critically slammed. (ANI)
