The Wicked Movie Is Definitely Happening, But The 'When' Could Be A Problem — cinemablend.com

Film Divider spoke with Marc Platt ( Into the Woods, Wanted) about the planned Wicked movie, asking for confirmation on whether or not the feature adaptation of the hit Broadway musical would, in fact, be hitting theaters next year. The good news is, 2016 is the plan. The not-so-good news is, according to Platt, it's not entirely locked down... While high standards may be at least part of the reason why Wicked might not hit its 2016 targeted release, the continued popularity of the stage production could also be a factor. Platt doesn't make any mention of that in the interview that Film Divider ran, but it seems necessary to note that Wicked remains an extremely popular musical on Broadway. Adapted from Gregory Maguire's Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, the show follows the friendship that develops between Elphaba (the future Wicked Witch of the West) and Glinda during the time leading up to Dorothy's arrival in Oz. With humor, emotional drama and an excellent soundtrack, Wicked does a bit of revising to the classic Wizard of Oz story as it gives us a look at the Wicked Witch of the West's side of the story.
