December 12, 2021

The Phantom of the Opera has seen many screen iterations over the last century, and the Gaston Leroux novel is being adapted into a new contemporary movie simply titled Phantom. Moving the setting from an opera house in Paris to the nightlife scene of New Orleans, the film has been picked up by Universal, who obviously delivered the iconic 1925 movie version starring Lon Chaney, and is reported to be a spec script from John Fusco, which comes with producers Harvey Mason Jr, Mike Jackson and singer John Legend on board.
