Remember the 2002 hit British soccer film Bend It Like Beckham?
We're sure it's been out of your mind for a while, but the movie that gave Keira Knightley her breakout role is being adapted as both a West End and Broadway musical!
The films director and driving force behind the musical reincarnation, Gurinder Chadha, said:
"The script is ready to go. It's going to be on both the West End and Broadway. We are currently deciding who is the right person to write the score, so it's at a really exciting stage."
Very cool! Not only was the film a great sports drama, but the story explores great themes about family, friendship, sexuality, and pursuing your dreams against all odds!
