Please, oh please, let this happen!

From its start on Broadway, Spring Awakening has captured the hearts on many and now, composer and recording artist, Duncan Sheik is trying to get it made into a movie with his partner in crime, Steven Sater!

In an interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune, Duncan talked about his upcoming projects and revealed he's in the process of getting Spring Awakening made into a movie.

He revealed:

We’re trying to get the Spring Awakening movie made this year. It’s in process, and we have a fancy director (McG) and a fancy producer (Playtone, Tom Hanks’ company) involved. So fingers crossed we’ll be diving into it.

And with a musical turned movie almost always comes new music, right??

Duncan talks about writing a new song for the Broadway musical turned movie:

You always have to write a new song. People say all kinds of stuff about this: "Oh, we really needed this moment of emotion for the character to come alive." But the real truth always is that it’s the only way you’re eligible for an Academy Award, is to have a new song.

(So) we’ve written the song. I can’t wait to do it - I hope i get to do it, to record it.

Casting has yet to be announced, but we've got two names for you, Duncan.

Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff.

These two stars got their start on Broadway with that very play! They would certainly come full circle if they were casted as the leads of Spring Awakening!

Just how amazing would that be?!

    These two were amazing during their time in the show, but NO. No they cannot reprise their roles. The whole poignancy of Spring Awakening is that it's young teens trying to explore their sexuality and survive through tragedy. The characters are all 13-15 years old, and that young naivety is what makes it so beautiful. Sure, for production reasons it may be easier to cast over-18s, but then they'll still be young, fresh-faced and innocent looking. No way can two almost thirty year olds play these roles in a movie (where the age will be so obvious, as opposed to stage where they can get away with more.)
