Paramount has acquired the rights to Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “The King and I” and can launch a brand new musical that Temple Hill will produce.
Concord, who acquired the Rodgers & Hammerstein catalogue in 2017, may even produce. The new musical will probably be a retelling of the basic “East-meets-West story,” in keeping with the studio.
The movie will observe Anna Leonowens, who units sail from England for Bangkok, Siam (now Thailand) to change into the schoolteacher for the royal courtroom of the King of Siam.
The musical is from famed duo Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, and was based mostly on the 1944 novel by Margaret Landon titled “Anna and the King of Siam.” The novel was based mostly on true occasions within the 1860s, when the king employed an English schoolteacher.
The musical first debuted in 1951 to crucial and business acclaim, and received Tonys for Best Musical, Best Actress (Gertrude Lawrence) and Best Actor (Yul Brynner).
The musical was then tailored right into a film in 1956, with Brynner reprising his function because the king, and Deborah Kerr starred as Anna. The movie scored 9 Oscar nominations.
Currently, no author or directer are hooked up to the challenge.
