Shankman to Direct Bob the Musical & Sinbad

ON

Hairspray and upcoming Bedtime Stories director Adam Shankman has signed on to helm Bob the Musical at Disney and Sinbad at Sony, reports Variety.

Bob the Musical centers on a mild-mannered man who suddenly hears the “inner song” of people’s hearts after being struck on the head.

Jennifer Gibgot, Shankman’s sister and partner in Disney-based Offspring Entertainment, will join Chris Bender, JC Spink, Tripp Vinson and Beau Flynn as producers. Shankman will executive produce.

Shankman is in final negotiations to direct and develop a take on classic epic adventure Sinbad.

The story centers on Sinbad and his crew, who are marooned off the coast of China and embark on a quest to find the lamp of Aladdin.

Shankman said it hasn’t been decided which project will move into production first.
