Mellencamp’s Ghostly Musical
John Mellencamp and Stephen King have been working together on a horror musical – and it will debut in Atlanta during September.Called Ghost Brothers Of Darkland Country, it’s about two brothers who hate each other, and then discover that their father had two older brothers who also loathed one another, and ended up killing each other in a cabin. The ghosts of the latter pair then start to haunt the former.
Horror master King and Mellencamp have been collaborating on this project for a decade, and both will be in the cast. There will also be a book published, together with a three-CD set. Two of the discs will feature the whole of the show, while the third will be the soundtrack, with guest appearances from the likes of Sheryl Crow, Elvis Costello and Kris Kristofferson.
