    With directors like Tom Hooper and Sean Durkin doing musicals i was wondering what directors would be interesting doing original musicals or based on old musicals.

    Joss Whedon (did a buffy musical episode)
    Quentin Tarantino (picks great music in his films)
    Paul Thomas Anderson (he would be an interesting choice)

    If you have some more ideas share them.

    It could be interesting if Baz Luhrmann returned to what he does best.
    Then there’s Uwe Boll. I’m serious. His directorial prowess is tailor-made for a comedy musical, intentional or otherwise.

    I agree with Paul Thomas Anderson. He’s my favorite director currently working and I think that he could bring a non-cheesy musical to the screen perfectly. Maybe something like “The Light in the Piazza” or “Everyday Rapture.”

    Quentin Tarantino would be perfect for a musical. One about new wave cinema?

    Not only should Joss Whedon do a movie musical, he should do it with “The Avengers 2.”

    Pedro Almodovar — Has he done one already? It feels like he must have because his films have such musicality as it is. If he hasn’t, he needs to do one immediately.

    Wes Anderson might be awesome. His odd sensibility brought to a musical would be nothing if not interesting.

    Darren Aronofsky — something dark probably.

    Spike Lee

    Tarsem — God knows it would be the best looking musical you could think of.

    Werner Herzog — Worth it only to hear Herzog sing his voice-over narration.  

    Spike Jonze

    David Fincher — Already a music video background, like Spike Jonze and Tarsem.

    Steven Soderbergh — He’s running out of genres and styles he hasn’t tried.

    I always thought Tim Burton was more suited to direct Into the Woods moreso than Sweeney Todd (though I did enjoy his Sweeney a lot).

    I’d like to see Lars von Trier do another musical.

    Also Todd Haynes, who gave us the glam rock demi-musical VELVET GOLDMINE. Haynes has a good eye for lush 50’s melodrama — he would be a natural for a sad musical romance — with a gay sensibility.

    I also liked SWEENEY TODD a lot — I agree Tim Burton should try his hand at another Sondheim musical, this time with actors who are also great singers. Hugh Jackman would be a very sexy Giorgio in PASSION.

    I think I’ll pass

    Joss Whedon 
    No, just no, please

    As soon as I saw this thread, the first thing that came to mind was “Joss Whedon doing a Dr. Horrible musical.” That would surely be a sight to see. 

    Werner Herzog doing a musical? Sign me up.

    I feel like if Terrence Mallick did a musical, it would be Black Swan, but without all of the stuff that makes Black Swan really cool.  

    What would a Christopher Nolan music be? Would Hans Zimmer co-write the score with, or at least bring in to help with it, Jonny Greenwood or Johnny Marr?

    I think if David Lynch were to do a musical, he would just do a rock opera revolving around his 2011 release Crazy Clown Time.

    Pedro Almodovar should have directed Nine.

    Wes Anderson should direct a film adaptation of A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder

    I want to see M. Night Shyamalan direct a true classic musical. Maybe a Sondheim, like Assassins? Of course, he would also need to incorporate a twist ending into it. That would be a train wreck that I would watch again and again.

    That would be the worst thing ever M Night doing a musical actually any more movies for that matter. I love the idea of Wes Anderson doing A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder. I haven’t seen the show but from all the TV performances it looks right up his ally.

    Just though of Almodovar directing and In the Heights adaptation in the cast your dream musical thread and now it needs to happen. Also very much agree on Spike Jonze and weirdly Darren Aronofsky. I could strangely see him doing something cool with a Spring Awakening adaptation

    Maybe it wasn’t clear that I was joking… It is obviously a terrible idea.
