Flip and learn more about Mcfly’s Tom Fletcher Novel Becoming A Movie…
The Christmasaurus has yet to hit bookstores and Kindles and already the novel is being turning into an animated musical movie, with up-and-coming director Michael Gracey planning a film version.
Tom even says Michael’s early enthusiasm helped him complete the book. Tom told the Daily Star newspaper:
“I’d only finished the first draft when I sent it to the director (Michael) and he literally came back in the first email with illustrations and I thought it was amazing.”
“He was so inspired and fired up that we had this plan to make the film as I was still shaping the story of the book.”
Get this, the director even roped in two Hollywood stars to send Tom a good luck message.
It gets better because its Zac Efron and Hugh Jackman, who are both working with Michael on new movie The Greatest Showman.
Jackman posted a photo of himself with Efron just a few days ago having a man-boy day out.
Tom has hope they’ll sign-up for The Christmasaurus movie, he says:
“I love having Wolverine’s (Hugh’s X-men character) stamp of approval. I’d love to have Zac and Hugh in the film. Why not? It’s difficult but we already have the world’s biggest star in it – Santa.”
Tom is also writing a soundtrack album for the film, which he started work on after finishing the book.
“I’ve written songs for a book but books don’t play music. You have to be in the moment for the songs to work.”
The film adaptation is yet to receive an official release date.
