Magnum Force guns for the stage

Singer-songwriter Robyn Hitchcock, apparently a Magnum Force obsessive, reportedly plans to turn the Dirty Harry sequel into a stage musical.

"The man responsible for taking Harry to the stage will be British singer-songwriter Robyn Hitchcock, who plans to produce the show alongside MTV executive Bill Flanagan. While perhaps best known for his surrealistic music (his most recent album was Ole! Tarantula, which featured a song inspired by Magnum Force), he also has a track record of collaboration with the film-maker Jonathan Demme, with whom he made the concert film Storefront Hitchcock. The singer has also made cameo appearances in two of Demme's dramas: The Manchurian Candidate and the recently released Rachel Getting Married.

Hitchcock claims his relationship with Magnum Force is a longstanding one. "It's a film that seemed to be on all the time when I was on tour," he said. "By the fifth time [I saw it], I became addicted to it. It's taken a very strange hold on my life.""

Personally, many of my limitations involve musical theater.

This is just a giant facepalm of an idea.
