Mattel Sings Its Way to the Bank With Monster Musical

There’s nothing more frustrating than being teased with a new project and having zero information released, especially when the description is so incredibly vague. This evening Variety reports that Universal Pictures has made a big-bucks deal to acquire an untitled Mattel toy property for a live-action musical film that aspires to add a fresh twist to monster lore. That’s it, that’s all you get. The duo will reunite with the “Hairspray” team of Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman to write the score. Mattel would not reveal the name of the toy line or when it will launch.
