Broadway Producer Kevin McCollum, Film Producer John Davis, Industry Exec Tom McGrath to Helm 20th Century Fox Theatrical Venture
The venture, which will develop live stage productions based on the studios' films, will also engage NYMF executive director Isaac Hurwitz as a consultant.
Together, the team plans to develop a slate of at least nine musicals over the next several years as well as to develop and produce stage properties based on Fox films that can return to the big screen in their new form.
"The early development phase is both an exciting and vulnerable time in the life of a musical. This new joint venture provides a much needed foundation to the creative process for myself, my partners, and the artists who will develop these shows," said Kevin McCollum in a statement.
