Sunset Blvd is screaming out to be a movie. And id also like Phantom to be remade as the movie really was a let down
Sunset I believe is in limbo, problem lies with Paramount Pictures who owns the rights to the film, ALW mentioned on EP that if School of Rock is successful, he may discuss Sunset as a future with Paramount.

I'm really apprehensive about them making a Wicked film - I don't think it lends itself to cinema at all. It's my favourite musical, but I just can't see it on the big screen - how could they ever do Popular justice? Would Defying Gravity really work if performed in the attic of a tower?
It seems to me a lot of the numbers work on stage regardless of their physical location writhing Oz, but it would make a difference on the boho screen.
Plus I don't want to see Dorothy, but suspect she'll need to make an appearance - you can't expect the audience to fill in the blanks on their own.
Wicked will happen since Universal is involved and they've had success with Les Mis, I imagine it'll happen sooner or later.

I'd love to see a film version of Book of Mormon but with them being so particular about the show's marketing (ie. basing it all on reviews instead of releasing clips/ promoting songs from the show) I v much doubt this would ever happen.
I imagine they'll launch a few more productions before a movie, Trey and Matt plus Scott Rudin who is the main producer are all experienced with filmmaking but its a question of when not if since Trey and Matt are busy with South Park.
