The new version of "The Phantom of the Opera" is in preparation, and its story background will be moved to New Orleans

This version of “The Phantom of the Opera” will move the story to New Orleans, and its time background is modern.

And this also means that the music in the film will be replaced with jazz, R&B, soul, and funk.

In addition, the story will be deeply rooted in various folklore of New Orleans, such as French Creole culture, carnival, masquerade voodoo, and so on.

In other words, the stories that took place in the opera house in the original story will be localized in New Orleans.

And this is also one of the highlights of the film.

There are many versions of “The Phantom of the Opera”, and the plot of the film is similar.

The story takes place in an opera house. The newcomer Christine is helped by the so-called “The Phantom” in the theater, making rapid progress.

Because of his ugly appearance, he was abandoned by his parents since he was a child and lived in the basement of the theater wearing a mask.

By chance, Christine had the honor to play the leading role of an opera.

With the rich singing skills learned from “The Phantom”, Christine became an instant hit and was spotted by the young and handsome theater patron Raoul.

The two young men quickly fell in love.

“The Phantom” was heartbroken, thinking that Raoul had robbed Christine, and he was going to stage a drama of love and revenge…

Currently, there is no specific shooting and release schedule for the film.
