Elton Currently Working on Showstopper Music
"It's called Showstopper," he said. "Anthony Barrele, a dear friend of mine who produced this show Off- and on Broadway, co-wrote with me a screenplay years ago for Ben Stiller. It's about a theatrical family, and it takes place in the world of Broadway. Elton came on board about two years ago to produce with Ben Stiller's company — and also to write the musical within the movie. Anthony and I are writing lyrics with Elton.
"We're working on trying to get a director. It's been a long time coming, but there's some new momentum behind it so I hope it'll be coming to a theatre near you soon.
