Jon M. Chu to Direct Film Adaptation of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”

NOTE: This article is 8 months old and may not include the most recent information.

Acclaimed director Jon M. Chu is set to direct a film adaptation of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s beloved musical, Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, for Amazon Studios, following his work on the highly anticipated Wicked movie musical.

Deadline has reported that Chu has long had a desire to direct the classic musical, aligning with Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group’s vision of transforming the stage show into a “Hollywood spectacular.”

Chu, known for his work on the hit comedy Crazy Rich Asians and the film adaptation of In the Heights, is currently in London directing the two-part Wicked movie. The film features a star-studded cast, including Ariana Grande, Cynthia Erivo, Michelle Yeoh, Jonathan Bailey, Ethan Slater, Jeff Goldblum, Marisa Bode, and more.

Chu will be teaming up once again with his In The Heights producing partner, Scott Sanders, for the development and production of Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Sanders has also recently worked on the upcoming The Color Purple movie musical, which is slated for release later this year.

Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat has captivated audiences for decades as an enchanting family musical that follows the trials and triumphs of Joseph, Israel’s favorite son. The production marked the first collaboration between composer Andrew Lloyd Webber (Jesus Christ Superstar, Phantom of the Opera, Cats) and lyricist Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, The Lion King), and features a diverse blend of pop, country, and rock music.

The film adaptation will retell the Biblical story of Joseph, his eleven brothers, and the iconic coat of many colors, and will include unforgettable songs such as Those Canaan Days, Any Dream Will Do, and Close Every Door.
