We guess they're ignoring the disastrous Nathan Lane one made a few years back!
Smart move! That mess is best left forgotten in time!
Adam Shankman has been hired by New Line Cinemas to direct an adaptation of the classic Christmas story, The Nutcracker, which is set to debut in theaters late 2013!
According to sources, the script, written by Darren Lemke, is largely based on the original 1815 E.T.A. Hoffman book, and will focus on a young girl and the wooden toy soldier who comes to life, with emphasis on the drama and love story aspects!
Inneresting! We're curious to see how they plan to separate this from the films and ballets that have become before it!
What do U think?? Would U want to see a movie version of The Nutcracker??
