webber-riceSTX Entertainment announced today during the studio’s presentation at CinemaCon in Las Vegas that Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice are writing new songs for an upcoming film adaptation of the stage musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Also on board the project is Elton John who is producing the project for his Rocket Pictures company. The movie tells the biblical story of Joseph, the favorite son of Jacob, who is sold into slavery by his jealous siblings.  While in exile, his knack for interpreting dreams gains him favor with Pharaoh, and leads to an unexpected reunion with the family who abandoned him. No word yet on a release date for the film.

    Hope they get Hans Zimmer (& Geoff Zanelli or John Powell, maybe) to do Re-Orchestrations & Producing the songs; match made in Musical Heaven (Andrew Lloyd Webber with Hans Zimmer), which would be cool. 🙂
