“I’d love to work with someone who wants to do an experimental musical,” said Joe Russo, adding that the brothers have talked to a number of artists, including The Weeknd about this idea. “I thought what he did during his Super Bowl show was awesome. I’d love to see that as a movie.”
The Russos have their hands full at the moment with The Gray Man, which stars Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans in a classic action movie. The film is currently in select theaters and premieres on Netflix on Friday, July 22.
You’ll have to wait a bit longer to see the Russos-directed Weeknd musical.
