News from around the web

The big screen adaptation of Wicked has been on the cards for a while now, but hit a block when director Stephen Daldry stepped down, now Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu has stepped in.

The American director has just completed the movie In The Heights, a musical which will hit cinemas, hopefully, later in 2021 after release delays.

The sequel to Crazy Rich Asians, China Rich Girlfriend might also be on his schedule which will be film back to back with the third film Rich People Problems although rumours suggest Chu won't direct.

The film version of the hit musical about the witches of Oz has been in the works for a while, it should have hit cinemas in December of 2019, the same time as another musical adaptation hit, Cats!
