Ghost Remake Japan 499x387 “Ghost” Musical Set For UK Stage

Ghost – the 1990 romantic drama starring Demi Moore and late actor Patrick Swayze — is being revived as a musical, set to hit stages across the UK in 2011.

Bruce Joel Rubin has inked a deal to adapt his Oscar-winning screenplay into Ghost: The Musical, which will launch a seven-week tryout Opera House in Manchester before kicking off a projected run on England’s famed West End. Tony-winner Matthew Warchus has signed on to direct the production, while Glen Ballard and Eurthymics’ Dave Stewart will pen the score.

Ghost: The Musical opens March 28.

The film about the ghost of a murdered man (Swayze), who uses the talents of a spirited spiritualist (a role that won Whoopi Goldberg an Oscar) to communicate with his heartbroken girlfriend (Moore), has gained an almost cult-like following in the 20 years since its release. In fact, director Taro Otani recently directed a Japanese-language remake of the film that will open in Asian cinemas this fall.
