the kings speech coming to broadway

After seeing Hairspray over the weekend, we kind of want to see more of Nick Jonas on stage! We suppose he's a bit young to play King George VI, though…or is he??? LOLz.

Back in April, we learned that the Weinsteins were planning on bringing Finding Neverland, Cinema Paradiso, Chocolat, and other movies to Broadway.

At the time, we joked about the possibility of a King's Speech musical coming next, and while there may not be any music in this one, we TOTALLY called it that last year's Best Picture winner would make its way to Broadway!

As far as King's Speech play deets are concerned, so far all we know is that it's slated to premiere on Broadway in fall 2012, but it'll get a run in the U.K. in the spring!

We thought the film was fine as is, so maybe this play isn't entirely necessary, but if they find the right cast, we could see giving this one a try.

What do U think? Would U like to see a Broadway version of The King's Speech?

    I don't think this is a good idea. The movie worked because there were a lot of different scenes and it moved along. You can't do that on a stage. The movie was too talky. The different scenes saved it from being boring. And it was kind of boring in spots anyway. But I liked it as a movie. I would never go to see a play version of it.

    The Kings Speech was a play before it was a movie.

    I loved the movie and I'd love to see Nick Jonas if it goes to Broadway!
