FOX has announced the next two live musicals following the success of Grease Live!

First up is Rent, which Fox will put on in celebration of its 20th anniversary!

OMG we can't believe it either!

Then, during the holiday season — up against rival NBC's production of Bye Bye Birdie — Fox will bring out the big guns, of the Red Ryder BB variety, with a live version of A Christmas Story The Musical!

Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who adapted the film into a musical back in 2012 (and went on to create the PHENOMENAL Dear Evan Hansen), will write all new songs for the TV production!

Marc Platt, who won an Emmy for producing the network's acclaimed version of Grease, will coproduce both shows.

No dates have been announced yet, but expect casting announcements soon, especially on Rent.

Are YOU stoked for Fox's next live musicals??

Ch-ch-check out what it might be like to see Ellen star alongside Ryan in La La Land (above) and remember to be thankful she didn't get cast — or Miles Teller and Emma Watson for that matter!

Channing Tatum Has Magic Moves, But Get Ready To Hear Him SING In A Musical Comedy With Joseph Gordon-Levitt!

Channing and JGL singing and dancing together? YES, PLEASE!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is FINALLY getting his wish!

The 34-year-old has been dying to do a movie musical with Channing Tatum, and it looks like it's actually going to happen this time!

The Hollywood Reporter revealed that the actors are set to star in a song-filled comedy produced by one of the men who brought Wicked to the Broadway stage, Marc Platt.

It's also being penned by 21 Jump Street writer Michael Bacall. The scribe has obviously worked with the 35-year-old in the buddy cop comedy, but he's also partnered with JGL in the past, as well.

In fact, he and the 500 Days of Summer alum were the ones who pitched the idea to Universal!

Now, the execs are being tight-lipped about the script, but we do know it's going to be an R-rated flick following two pilots who will probably be getting into some shenanigans and singing about them!

This won't be the first time we'll see the Magic Mike hunk sing on camera, since that debut happened in his new film Hail Caesar!, but it'll be inneresting to see him in a full-blown musical movie!

We can't wait to see Joseph and Channing singing and dancing together, especially since it looks like that Guys and Dolls remake isn't going to pan out after all!

The couple that plays works together, stays together!!!

Anne Hathaway and her cute hubby Adam Shulman just CAN'T get enough of each other!!!

Thankfully, the twosome are spending looonnngggg hours on set as Adam has signed on to help produce Anne's latest musical flick, Song One!!!

As the back-to-brunette actress filmed a scene at a coffee shop in NYC, Adam did his producer thang and ran errands!!

Adorbzies, right??!

Sounds like a perfect set up to us!

Based on the madly in love glow we're seeing (above), having her man on set could also inspire the leading lady to deliver yet another Oscar-worthy performance!

And having critically acclaimed Rachel Getting Married producers Marc Platt and Jonathan Demme on board won't hurt her chances either.

Work it, gurl!!!
