Wicked Coming to Big Screen

The popular and totally wicked Broadway musical Wicked is moving on to big screen, following other successful musicals such as Chicago, Hairspray and Mama Mia!

According to Paybill News, this new production will be handled by Marc Platt Productions for Universal Pictures: “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 wouldn’t 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 we’re dying to do it.”

Below is the clip Defying Gravity from the musical by the London cast. Just to remind you how amazing the musical is:

Amanda Seyfried’s Gimme Gimme Gimme

This is the music video of Amanda Seyfried’s attempt on ABBA’s Gimme Gimme Gimme to promote Mama Mia: The Movie which also stars Dominic Cooper and Meryl Streep. The ABBA song is still good after so many years but promoting the movie with Seyfried’s singing? I’m not so sure. What’s for sure is that her attempt is definitely not the best cover out there.

Ugly Betty: The Musical

Rumors are floating around that ABC’s fun and over dramatic TV show Ugly Betty might be hitting Broadway in the near future. Michael Urie, who plays the gay assistant Marc says “They do want to do an “Ugly Betty” musical, a full-on Broadway musical, but it’s all hush-hush. I think it would be great, and they should use the cast from the show. I think we would all do it, although we maybe don’t dance and sing as well as professional singers and dancers. I think it would be fun for us to do it for a while, and then they could get real people in. They definitely want to do an episode that is a musical one, but then they want to do a full stage show. I think it’s a great idea. It would definitely work.”

Sounds like a bunch of fun eh?

Mamma Mia With Dominic Cooper

Entertainment Tonight recently ran a preview of this summer’s forthcoming Mamma Mia film and even though it looks like it has the potential to be a trainwreck it’s got a few things going for it right off the bat — ABBA, Meryl Streep singing, and the tasty Dominic Cooper.
