wicked movie details

This is Wicked awesome news!!

In case you were unaware, there's a film adaptation of the musical Wicked in the works, and it sounds like the plans are moving right along!

Producer Marc Platt recently updated fans on where the movie stands, and he delivered some excellent news — they have a director AND a prospective release date!

He revealed:

"It's Stephen Daldry. He's been on for a year or two. But it's in process. 2016 is the goal, but I don't know whether we'll make that goal or not. We will make the movie, but like I said, the bar is really high. We're going to scrutinise our work on the screenplay and our prep on the movie, and when we feel like it's ready, okay. We're not going to shoot a release date is what I'm saying. It's in the works, it's not in a rush. It took 27 years to make Into the Woods into a film from its original stage production, and 30 years with Les Mis. Some things take time for a reason."

This is both amazing and concerning at once!! Ha!

While we couldn't be more ecstatic to hear that Stephen Daldry (director of Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close) has been attached to the flick, the tidbit about being willing to spending 27 or 30 years on the film makes us nervous.

Can't WAIT for more updates!

    NOOOOOO - not Lea Michele - she can not act. I propose Anna Kendrick for Glinda and Emily Blunt as Elphaba. Both roles need an actor who can sing. Lea Michele is no actor. What else has she done besides "Glee" - a walk-on on "Sons of Anarchy"?

    Aaron Tveit had better be cast in this musical, he is so perfect in every aspect.

    I need Mackenzie Mauzy (Rapunzel from Into the Woods) as Glinda. Make it happen.
