Brooks tunes up ‘Producers’ pic

With the hope of an Oscar nomination, Mel Brooks has written a song for the film version of “The Producers.”

“There’s Nothing Like A Show On Broadway” is sung over the credits by co-stars Nathan Lane and Mathew Broderick.

Thomas
Meehan, who partnered with Brooks on the book and script of “The
Producers,” said Brooks came up for the idea for the new tune “when we
were working on the script last summer.”

The
duo is now also at work on the book for the musicalized “Young
Frankenstein” with Susan Stroman to again direct as she had the legit
and filmed “Producers.”

Universal will open “The Producers” Dec. 16 in a single theater in six cities. It opens wide on Christmas.

“From
Dec. 16 to 26, people are not going to the movies — they’re busy
shopping,” Brooks said. “And who wants to fight the Christmas-themed
movies? I’d like to see ‘The Producers’ hang around for several months.”
