Spamalot is a no-go. Just no.
Why is that?
I would love to see a new movie adaptation of Camelot
with Hugh Jackman as King Arthur.
Man Of La Mancha

And, frankly, I wouldn't mind them remaking some classic musicals that got less than sterling film adaptations in the past. MAN OF LA MANCHA maybe?
could be remade, but why? The original was quite good.
The reason the movie failed was because of the way it was shot and set up, and also (I think) because the big show-stopping number 'The Impossible Dream' had been overexposed and overplayed. As well, the late '60s-early '70s wasn't a great time to be making musicals or any real large movie that needed a roadshow airing, plus people were so into the counterculture that a musical like Man Of La Mancha
wouldn't work for them, so that may also have affected how it was received. Then again, it could be improved upon.
