Oscar-Winning Classic The Sting Is Coming To Broadway! Wait, Really?!? Here Are 11 Other Movies That In No Way Need A Musical Adaptation!

the sting

Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE us some musicals!

But there are some movies that just aren’t meant to be on Broadway!

It was just announced that the latest flick to find a place on The Great White Way is The Sting and we’re sort of scratching our heads as to why oh why they would adapt this Oscar-winning classic into a musical?!

The 1973 film starring Robert Redford and Paul Newman tells the story of two con artists who set out to scam a mob boss in Depression-era Chicago.

We’ve definitely got our doubts that the Best Picture winner The Sting will sing its way to musical glory, although anything is possible!

Here are 11 other movies we hope NEVER make their way onto a New York City stage…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Paramount Suing Godfather Author's Estate

Filed under: Legal MattersBusiness Blitz

godfather lawsuit

Hollywood LOVES sequels, unless they aren't seeing any of the profits.

Paramount has filed a lawsuit against the estate of Mario Puzo, the author of The Godfather, because it has given a green light to another novel based on the original that the movie studio still owns the rights to.

The lawsuit complains that the Puzo family published The Godfather's Revenge in 2006, but intends to publish another sequel titled The Family Corleone without Paramounts permission.

Not only has the Puzo family "tarnished" the brand and "misled consumers" in the studio's eyes, at least, but the court documents continue to read:

An Offer You Can't Refuse! The Godfather Game Coming To Facebook!

Filed under: Film FlickersTech TalkFacebook

godfather-facebook-game-developed.jpg

San Francisco-based social game developer Kabam is bringing the underworld to social networking. The company announced today that Paramount Pictures has agreed to license them their Oscar-winning film The Godfather to be turned into a social game for Facebook.

Now, fans of the already established game Mafia Wars might not care so much, but real movie buffs who love the classic film series might really get suckered into this. The game is called The Godfather: Five Families and takes place in New York City in the 1930s, a decade before where the first movie in the film trilogy starts. As a player, you are born into one of the five mafia families Francis Ford Coppola created and then you must find a way to become don, by any means necessary.

As always, the game is free to start, but not if you plan on making it to don. Then, you'll have to start spending a little cash to get the weapons and special skills you'll need.

Sounds fun for those who always wanted to be Brando. Not so much for anyone else.

Think U might join this family???
