Last we heard about the Weinsteins, they were totally giving the shaft to the Fraggle Rock movie.
We thought it was due to their foray into the video game industry, but now it looks like they've got another new venture which could be keeping them quite busy: producing plays for Broadway!
For their first theatre project, the Weinsteins are developing a musical based on 2004's Finding Neverland, which starred Johnny Depp as Peter Pan creator J.M. Barrie.
Other films that Bob and Harvey are looking to bring to Broadway include Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Chocolat, and Cinema Paradiso.
We'll try to be cautiously optimistic about some of these, but it's tough not to be skeptical.
Chocolat and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon were two of the best films that came out in 2000 - treat them with care, boys!
And for the sake of film lovers everywhere who grew up watching Cinema Paradiso, please don't ruin it! The film won the Oscar for best Foreign Language film in 1990, and we know it has a special place in the hearts of lots of people.
Keep that in mind while moving forward, Weinsteins! Thanks!
Would U like to see the Weinsteins adapt some of their classic films into Broadway productions?
