Steve Mcqueen - Steve Mcqueen: 'Now I Want To Make A Musical'

Moviemaker Steve Mcqueen is keen to make a musical after tiring of creating dark, complex dramas like Shame and 12 Years A Slave.

The director has won acclaim for his emotionally-charged films and his 12 Years a Slave is a favourite to pick up the Best Picture prize at the Oscars next month (Mar14), but the Brit admits he's had enough of all the tensions that come with hard-hitting movies.

He tells Rolling Stone, "I want to make a musical next. I'm not kidding.

"Having made Hunger, Shame and 12 Years a Slave, I don't want to put myself through that kind of pain again. Those films feel like a trilogy. I was angry. I was f**king angry. And now I'm happy: I did it, and all the anger came out in the end."
