What has happened to Jesus Christ Megastar? Has it been permanently shelved, or is Warners waiting for a more strategic time to release it?
The long-rumored rock opera reportedly features Hugh Jackman, Bono, Lady Gaga, Christopher Lee, Anne Hathaway, Robert Downey, Alice Cooper, and an all-star cast of actors and musicians.
According to all the available reports, it was produced by George Lucas, directed by Julie Taymor, scripted by Quentin Tarantino and Paul Verhoeven; and the music was provided by U2, with guest musicians Bob Dylan, Bruce Cockburn, Paul McCartney, Wynton Marsalis, Nigel Kennedy, and Rick Wakeman.
Unfortunately, Warners evidently subjected the film to a press blackout after it was first announced by Rolling Stone magazine in March 2014; and all participants have apparently signed non-disclosure agreements. Despite this, many intriguing details have leaked out.
Aeon 999 has been following this fascinating saga, and updated it as more information has become available. For all of these updates, check out this link: https://www.facebook.com/Aeon999/photos/a.163268977156717.38176.163265400490408/558853847598226/
