Tim Minchin and Matthew Warchus creating Groundhog Day musical?
The Matilda composer and director are teaming up for another show, this time a musical version of the 1993 film
Warchus told Baz Bamigboye in the Mail that the musical "has to be something in its own right, not just a carbon copy", and is unsure whether the show will open on this side of the pond. He said: "I'll decide where it should go — London or New York — once I see what kind of show it is. We won't know until we run it through at a workshop".
The 1993 film starred Bill Murray as a jaded weatherman, who is forced to re-live the same day again and again until he re-examines his life and priorities. It was directed by Harold Ramis.
