Tim Minchin and Matthew Warchus' Groundhog Day new musical

Matilda's writer and director Tim Minchin and Matthew Warchus are working on the comedy movie Groundhog Day to turn it into musical.

They are collaborating with Danny Rubin who created the screenplay for the iconic1993 film (which starred Bill Murray and Andie McDowell) about a dispirited weatherman who is forced into a time loop repeating the same day again and again. After indulging in hedonism and numerous suicide attempts, he begins to re-examine his life and priorities.

Warchus said  ‘We’ll be doing the first workshop in the spring. Tim and Danny have been working on it for a while.I’ll decide where it should go — London or New York — once I see what kind of show it is. We won’t know until we run it through at a workshop.’
