Tim Minchin has revealed further details of his next musical theatre project after the multi award-winning Matilda.

Exact details of his new musical - which he first spoke about in February at the WhatsOnStage Awards - are shrouded in secrecy, but he revealed some telling teasers in a recent interview in Australia.

Speaking to Sydney Sunday Telegraph's Jo Litson ahead of his appearance in Sydney Theatre Company's revival of Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Minchin said: "[the new show] is still embargoed even though I've been working on it for six months.

"But it's a very interesting, arty but much-loved early ‘90s film we are adapting for the stage: very conceptual, somewhat Stoppardian. It will be more complex and dark [than Matilda]."

He also revealed his is reuniting with Matilda director Matthew Warchus, saying the two "are going to try and start it quietly". Good luck with that, guys!
