Good news, Phans! Gaston Leroux's novel THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is being turned into a six-part miniseries, courtesy of the production company behind NARCOS.https://t.co/0opxG3BL4g— broadway.com (@broadwaycom) June 24, 2020
-To be produced by Gaumont, a French production company who've produced Netflix' Narcos and F is for Family. Though their UK unit will take the lead.
-Planned as a 6-part miniseries
-To be based on the original 1910 book rather than Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical
-The story is about a masked madman terrorizing the Paris Opera House, particularly young opera singer Christine Daae
-Writer Anthony Horowitz (Alex Rider/Midsomer Murders/James Bond/Foyle's War/Poirot) is attached. Though maybe Deadline should check its sources since this was news to Horowitz
Who told you that? I'm not sure I am working on it any more.— Anthony Horowitz (@AnthonyHorowitz) June 24, 2020
I hope the Persian finally makes it into this one
