Paramount Pictures has acquired the rights to Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The King and I, and the studio aims to mount a moving and vivid retelling of the classic East meets West story. Marty Bowen & Wyck Godfrey’s Temple Hill will produce. Concord, who acquired the Rodgers & Hammerstein catalogue in 2017, will also serve in a producing capacity.

Studio believes this new adaptation brings a tremendous opportunity to reimagine this classic story with a contemporary perspective that explores diversity and the contrasting worldviews of the characters by drawing from real history and the musical.

I love the original, but I think a remake can be made that is a little more respectful and sensitive to Thai culture as has been done on Broadway. As written, neither Anna or the King have to be cast with true singers but nowadays Anna is usually performed by a very strong soprano. Should be interesting to see the cast. I hope it is a grand, sumptuous production. “Shall We Dance?” is probably my favorite moment in musical theatre.
