Variety reports that A.R. Rahman has been hired to score the animated musical Monkeys of Bollywood from Dreamworks Animation. Also on board the project is lyricist Stephen Schwartz (Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Enchanted) and husband-and-wife producing team Gurinder Chadha and Paul Berge (Bend It Like Beckham, Bride and Prejudice). The project marks the studios’ first animated musical since 1998’s The Prince of Egypt, which was scored by Hans Zimmer and featured songs composed by Schwartz. The mumbai-set project is inspired by the Hindu epic poem “The Ramayana” and revolves around two monkeys who try to stop an ancient demon from conquering the world. No word yet on when the Bollywood-style animated musical is expected to come out.
