Les Mis - had a sudden resurge post 25th Anniversary - alongside an incredible ticket price hike and a loss of student/day seats.

Heartwarming.  Students eh?  What did students ever do for Les Miserables?

I know this has been brought up already but Miss Saigon is a given now after the success of Les Miserables. As is Wicked, in time. It's financed by a studio.

Apparently there is a script kicking around for a movie version of Blood Brothers. Also for The Last Five Years however I fear this would have to be incredibly fleshed out, rather than just the two of them.

Jersey Boys is happening with apparently a director already appointed.

As excited as I genuinely am about Into The Woods (I must admit) I'm somewhat apprehensive given how severely stuffed up Nine was- don't even get me started.

Sondheim has said he thinks Company would make a good film.

I know it's just my opinion (and I know there are already filmed staged versions of this) but I would  think the following would make good movie musicals- Barnum, The Light in the Piazza, Passion & Sunday in the Park with George.

They should do Sunset Boulevard- even if it's just as a DVD like Love Never Dies.

What about Chess, Parade, Ordinary Days, Disney's AIDA, Billy Elliott, Aspects of Love, City of Angels, Follies, Mack & Mabel, Kristina, just to name a few.
Don't we get to be happy? At some point down the line, don't we get to relax without some new tsuris to push me yet further from you!

Who dare tell the lambs in Spring what fate the later season brings?

It seems that the Jersey Boys movie (for the time being at least) has been dropped.

I'd love to see Miss Saigon on the big screen, it could be truly epic

Next on my list would be Sunset, and of course that brings with it the argument of who they'd get to play Norma? Liza, Streisand, Streep. Close?

Isn't Streisand planning to be in a big screen version of Gypsy?

Alan Parker wants to film Blood Brothers if he could get funding according to a clip I caught on News at Ten last night

Id love to see Sunset Blvd, I could see Ryan Gosling as Joe (no idea if he can sing but he'd act it perfectly) as for Norma, it needs to be a movie star who not only was beautiful but also still is attractive so Glenn Close would be ideal. NOT Liza or Barbara

Apparently Sheridan Smith has been cast in a new movie musical. Any idea what it might be?
