“Animal House’ latest silly movie to get musical treatment

    Quick, name a movie that should remain frozen in time as-is.

    What’s that, you say, “Animal House”? Too bad. The Associated Press reports Universal Pictures Stage Productions is developing the film into an on-stage musical.
    The Barenaked Ladies will produce an original score, and Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw will direct and choreograph the show.

    “Animal House” joins “Rocky” on the list of to-become-musical movies.
