One hit musical, which created a lot of buzz when it premiered and still has a lot of buzz surrounding it is ‘Wicked,’ which is a wild re-imagining of ‘The Wizard Of Oz,’ which centres on the wicked witch.
In a recent interview for Coming Soon Marc Platt revealed that a movie adaptation of the popular Broadway musical is years down the line.
The producer explained that he is in no rush to make the new motion picture as the stage show is still incredibly popular with fans.
“The movie of Wicked is still a number of years down the line,” he said. “We’ve just started its development, because the show’s still so strong with eight or nine companies around the world.
“That’s coming in the future. That’s why I haven’t been in a hurry, because it works so well on stage and audiences are enjoying it.
“It’s not a timely story, it’s a timeless [story], so I’ve been very sanguine to let folks explore it theatrically and when we’re ready we’ll make a movie.”
