Christopher Ashley will direct a remake of the 1988 musical, a farce about an English bachelor who inherits a fortune and must take his uncle’s corpse around Europe to get his hands on the money.

Alexander, Nikki M James and British newcomer Dominic Marsh are on board to star.

New Oz Productions’ Victor Syrmis and Branded Pictures Entertainment’s J Todd Harris produce and the shoot is scheduled for mid-June in Southern California.
