Del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth to become stage musical

PanARMENIAN.Net - Pan’s Labyrinth is taking shape as a stage musical. The 2006 Guillermo del Toro-directed film is about a young stepdaughter of a sadistic army officer who finds refuge and terror in a fantasy world in 1944 Fascist Spain. The stage version already has a book that has been written by del Toro and Jeremy Ungar. Paul Williams has just been signed to write the lyrics. Gustavo Santaolalla, who twice won Oscars for composing the scores for “Brokeback Mountain” and “Babel”, is writing the music. Robert Fox is producing with del Toro and Gary Ungar, Deadline reports.

Del Toro has been working quietly on this for four years, interviewing directors, librettists and composers. Del Toro, Williams and Santaolalla are also working on songs for the animated Reel FX film “Day Of The Dead”, which is in advanced stages of production.
