John August has been tapped to rewrite Touchstone Pictures' Bob the Musical, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Mark Waters is attached to direct the musical comedy, which is being produced by Benderspink's Chris Bender and JC Spink and Contrafilm's Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson. The musical comedy follows a mild-mannered man who suddenly hears the "inner song" of people's hearts after being struck in the head. Mike Bender wrote the original script.

Tony-winning composer-lyricist Marc Shaiman is writing music and lyrics for the project.
