Warner Bros has acquired the rights to a musical pitch from Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt, the Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning composing team behind the musical "Next to Normal".
Robert Downey Jr. is attached to star and he will also produce with Susan Downey and their Team Downey production company.
Yorkey will write the screenplay and the lyrics while Kitt will compose the music.
The story centers on two Broadway songwriters who find themselves creatively and financially bankrupt when their big-break musical flops. Searching for inspiration, they take jobs as counselors at the theater camp they attended as kids and hatch a plan for a big comeback.
