Pan’s Labyrinth returns as a musical

Guillermo del Toro’s 2006 masterpiece of a film, Pan’s Labyrinth, will return as a different and probably unexpected version. On stage, as a musical. The theatrical version of this project, talks about a little girl, depressed by her sadistic military father, who finds refuge, as well as terror, in an imaginary world, in fascist Spain, 1994.

It was written by del Toro and Jeremy Ungar, with Paul Williams already working on the lyrics. Gustavo Santaolalla, twice winner of an Academy Award for the soundtrack of Brokeback Mountain and Babel, will compose the music. Restless del Toro, who seems to be doing a dozen things at the same time, has been working on this idea for four years.

The director who just finished the impressive sci-fi film “Pacific Rim”, and who has already scheduled the horror movie “Crimson Peak”, is ready to give us a different approach to his awesome and favorite story. Santaolalla says he is excited by the fact that he has to translate del Toro’s magical vision, through music and singing.
