Wicked Movie for a 2016 Release?

Defying gravity or defying rumour by giving Wicked fans some information they want to hear?! We’ve finally been on the receiving end of some concrete information regarding the Wicked movie.

Film Divider this week spoke to ‘In The Woods’ producer Marc Platt who confirmed the rumour of the movie having a 2016 release. Though at the same time, he said that these plans are not ‘set in stone’.

“[…] it’s not set in stone,” he said. “The process of developing that movie has begun, we’re working on it, and whether it makes 2016 or not, I’m not so sure.”

In the same conversation, Platt confirmed that director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) is currently attached to the movie as he first was back in 2012.

Producer, Platt, insisted that the movie will only go ahead if they feel confident in the script which is being penned by Winnie Holzman.

“We will make the movie, but like I said, the bar is really high. We’re going to scrutinise our work on the screenplay and our prep on the movie, and when we feel like it’s ready, okay. We’re not going to shoot a release date is what I’m saying. It’s in the works, it’s not in a rush.”

Patience is a virtue as they say! Watch this space.
