Brooks tunes up ‘Producers’ pic

New song will be added to December release

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.”
