Mel Brooks has been wanting to turn Blazing Saddles into a musical for nearly five years and it seems the time has finally come. And the motivating force is none other than writer-director-producer-actor Quentin Tarantino. “A lot of it is musical already,” Brooks revealed during a PBS panel at the Television Critics Association. “It has a rather fanciful and fantastic tone to it.
