Andrew Lloyd Webber is set to open his new musical “The School of Rock” (based on the Jack Black movie) this December. Now, he is looking for his next project.
“Boxing is raw. It is pure drama, which is why Hollywood has made so many movies about the sport,” explains the Award winning Composer/Producer Webber. “This fight…the story is there. All it needs is a tune.”
Webber’s early draft focuses on the build-up to the official fight announcement, and yes, Floyd and Manny will be asked to perform a song each.
“Of course they want to make a show about me,” said Floyd “Money” Mayweather from the comfort of his new Mercedes “Land Yacht”. “I am Money. Anything I touch becomes money.”
When asked if he was worried about singing, Floyd replied, “Money can do anything he wants.” Mayweather spent the rest of the interview showing off his $25,000 mouthpiece.
For his part, Pacquiao hired a voice coach to start training him after the May 2nd fight.
Andrew Lloyd Webber is the composer of the hit musicals Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and Starlight Express.[Via]
