The wildly successful Broadway musical Wicked is going to be making the transition to the big screen. Much like Chicago, Hairspray and most recently Mama Mia! before it, Wicked is in the process of being adapted into a movie. This new production will be handled by Marc Platt Productions for Universal Pictures.
Marc Platt has extended his contract with Universal Pictures for five years, according to Variety. Marc Platt Productions currently has several projects of interest to theatre plans in the works, including a film version of the international hit Wicked, a remake of the 1973 Andrew Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice film Jesus Christ Superstar and a new motion picture about the life of the late composer George Gershwin.
Universal Pictures production president Donna Langley told the industry paper, Our goal now is absolutely to make the Wicked film, but much like Judy Craymer wouldnt give up screen rights to Mamma Mia! until the stage show had reached its pinnacle, Marc and Stephen Schwartz are very mindful of the right timing. But were dying to do it. Platt told Variety that he and Wicked co-producer David Stone are currently in early movie talks with the studio. Winnie Holzman, who penned the Tony-nominated book for Wicked, will write the films screenplay. No casting has been mentioned.
