Stephen King and John Mellencamp Musical

Broadway Musical News: The Couger Meets Cujo

Who knew Stephen King and John Mellencamp had anything in common, much less a desire to write a Broadway musical together? Not I, but apparently it's true, and the two men are collaborating on a musical theater project, scheduled to debut in April 2009, titled Ghost Brothers of Darkland County.

The story follows the legend that grows out of the tragic death of two brothers and a girl in the fictional town of Lake Belle Reve, Miss. The basic musical idea was originally Mellencamp's. He knew he needed a writer to help bring it to the stage and quickly thought of King.

While audiences have seen ghosts and gore on stage before (think Sweeney Todd) spokespeople for the production say this is a touching tale — more Shawshank Redemption and Stand By Me, less Carrie.

What do you guys think? Discuss.

After my slight obsession with Carrie The Musical (yeah, it exists), I'm really looking forward to this!
