The cross dressing film is now a cross-platform spectacle!
Tootsie, which originally premiered in 1982 starring Dustin Hoffman, is set to be adapted for the stage!
Sony Pictures has signed a deal with Scott Sanders Theatrical Prods to bring a number of classic movies to the stage, and Tootsie will be the first!
Here's what the theatre producer said:
"Sony Pictures has given the world some of the most exciting and compelling films in history. We're thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such extraordinary source material and to mine it for titles that make sense for theatrical adaptation. Our goal is to rediscover stories and characters which speak to the human experience, and that audiences want to see again, but from a new perspective."
We wonder if Dustin Hoffman will make an appearance?
Wouldn't that just be the most magnificent thing ever???
In case you were wondering: the answer to the question (above) is a resounding YES!!!
