I hesitate to even speak of this in jest 'cause it might happen: "Cyrano the Musical" with Lady Gaga as Roxane & the Bieber as The Nose!

How about remaking the 24 hour miniseries "War and Remembrance", this time with music? That should double the length and be twice as grim too.

Kelly's Heroes the Musical

The Bells, The Bells, the fakokamamy bells……

No contest…

Gunfight at the OK Corral-a John Woo/Meatloaf collaboration

I could watch a John Woo musical featuring a gunfight with any of the following 'musicians' providing the soundtrack…

Yoko Ono
Torture Garden
Bryan Adams
Michael Bolton
or…
Billy Ray Cyrus

I would watch a John Woo film with Jean Claude Van Damme.

"The Sound of Music", but with headlining bands Alice Cooper, KISS, and Twisted Sister (among others) converging on the von Trapp hideout before heading across the border and kicking Bleeped text with heavy metal like Slaanesh Noise Marines, therefore preventing WW2…. ;-)
