Meanwhile in TV news, ABC is planning on turning famous PHANTOM OF THE OPERA into a TV show run by DESPERATE'S WIVES' Mark Cherry! According to 'Deadline' the contemporary reimagining of Gaston Leroux’s gothic novel that was the basis for the famous musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber, will now be set in the sexy and cutthroat world of the modern day music business. The new TV show is not envisioned as a musical but will feature musical elements in the vein of ABC’s country music industry drama 'Nashville'.

  1. 45 minutes on a battle scene? That makes me glad I'm no longer married to someone who would have dragged me to that. No offense to action fans--but to me that's like a man having to sit through watching me try on shoes for 45 minutes. About the same amount of fun.

    1. this one should be really dynamic! They had such long battle scenes in LOTR too and they were not boring.

  2. That song sung by Billy Boyd is positively haunting. Beautifully so. I don't know how many times I've heard it, but I just love it!

  3. 45 minutes? Not sure I could sit through that without a bathroom break and some popcorn. Pass the Coke. But sign me up for The Phantom. Wahoo!

  5. I like the sound of World Breaker.

    And a Billy Boyd song at the end of the last battle ought to be epic. :)

    1. I hope it won't be boring. The only song I liked from the saga is Enya's MAY IT BE... the rest were mediocre,especially Sheeran's song

  7. The Phantom sounds yummy! I haven't seen a good, steamy show in some time. I hope Mark Cherry delivers well on this one.

  9. So Meryl will have lots of chances to serenade us. Pippin is one of my favs - love his voice. Hopefully they are not doing a country Phantom. Geez.

    1. Pippin is the only Hobbit I liked in the whole series :) The rest of them mostly annoyed me

    2. Pippin is the best - yes the rest were annoying. LOL.

  11. When I saw World Breaker I got happy. Scotsman, sexy Scotsman. Then I saw it was being done by Americans and I thought "Just how many bad accents will there be done by people not of Scotland"

    Sorry I haven't been in darling, but the Father In Law has been in hospital twice this month. We're also going regularly to visit him when he's home as we know the clock is ticking. I may try to post something next week, but I may not get a chance to.
