Writer and producer Allan Loeb has been enlisted to write and develop Disney's Bob the Musical, which will feature music and lyrics by Tony winner Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez — the husband-and-wife songwriting team behind "Frozen."
According to the Hollywood Reporter, producers Chris Bender, J.C. Spink and Jake Weiner of Benderspink, and Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson are pushing forward with the project — which has been in development since 2004 with various creatives, including Adam Shankman and Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
Bob the Musical will center on Bob, a regular guy who — after a blow to the head — can hear the "inner songs of everyone's heart as his reality is instantly turned into a musical, much to his dismay."
Loeb, who wrote the screenplay for the musical adaptation of Rock of Ages, also worked on "Just Go With It," "21," "The Switch" and "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," among others.
