'Amélie' director hates musical
August 29 , 2013
Twitter users expressed a lot of enthusiasm in regards to 'Amélie' being made into a musical but there is one person who does not approve of the idea. The director of the French film, Jean-Pierre Jeunet said he hates Broadway and "absolutely loathe(s) musical comedies."
Jeunet approved of the project because of the money it would generate. He plans on donating it to a charity.
The director also mentioned that he won't see the musical himself and doesn't want to hear about it. "But if it brings in money, maybe I can save some lives," he said.
