Wicked: The Movie?


Smash-hit Broadway musical WICKED is set to become the latest stageshow to be turned into a major movie.

Hot on the heels of Chicago, Hairspray and Mamma Mia!, the Wizard of Oz-related musical is to be turned a new Universal film, with producers Marc Platt and Stephen Schwartz.

But Universal boss Donna Langley insists fans will have to wait some time to see the film – because Platt and Schwarz are determined to take their time to ensure the movie repeats the success of the New York show that inspired the project.

Langley tells Variety magazine, “Our goal now is absolutely to make the Wicked film, but… Marc and Stephen Schwartz are very mindful of the right timing. But we’re dying to do it.”

Platt is currently working on the movie version of the musical Nine, starring Nicole Kidman, Daniel Day-Lewis and Penelope Cruz.
