HEDWIG's John Cameron Mitchell Writing Musical Television Series
Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter about his new film HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS AT PARTIES, based on a short story by Neil Gaiman, HEDWIG scribe and star John Cameron Mitchell revealed that he is currently working on a musical television series titled HOMUNCULUS.
"Right now I'm writing a musical television series, which is much more autobiographical," he reveals. "I'd star and maybe co-direct. I'm also writing the songs. I can't say too much yet, but it's called Homunculus."
Explaining the project's unusual title Mitchell shares, "I always liked it as an insult. It's something Glenda Jackson would use, isn't it? "You Homunculus!" But it's been consuming me for the past year, and I'm thrilled. It's like I haven't been this excited before because it's coming right out of my bowels."
