‘X Crucior’ Will be the Title of the New Sparks Movie Musical

The Mael brothers are having a resurgence

Deadline reports that brothers Ron and Russel Mael, better known as the Sparks, will be the screenwriters and producers of a new musical film titled X Crucior

This is one of the rare known details about the project, along with the fact that Focus Features will develop the film. The plot is now kept under wraps and there is no announcement of who is to the director or when the premiere might be.

Upon its release, X Crucior will mark Sparks’ second film venture with Focus Features, having served as the subjects of the studio’s Edgar Wright-directed documentary The Sparks Brothers in 2021.

In 2021, Ron and Russell served as the screenwriters and composers of Annette, a movie musical starring ​​Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard. Both film projects arrived a year after Sparks’ 2020 album A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip, which featured the singles “Self-Effacing” and “I’m Toast”. Prior to that, Sparks’ 23rd studio project Hippopotamus arrived in 2017.
