Yes, you heard it well, the famous French movie of Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Amelie (in French : Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain) created in 2001and which made Audrey Tautou famous is going to have another life…. on Broadway ! The movie will become a musical, directed by the American composer Dan Messe. The French director is not so pleased about his own decision to sell the rights to Broadway (“I only sold them to bring some money to the Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque organization (that helps children with heart defects). I think Broadway is the very incarnation of tackiness“) but even though we disagree, we are truly wondering what the outcome will be.
If you were able to do so, would you go see the musical on Broadway? What do you think of a potential adaptation of the movie Amelie into a musical?
