Jon M. Chu to Direct Universal Pictures “Wicked” Feature Film

After several years in development hell, it looks like Universal Pictures feature film presentation of the HUGE Broadway musical hit “Wicked” will finally defy gravity.

The highly popular tale of the ‘real story’ behind the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda from “The Wizard of Oz” first bowed in 2003, and immediately took hold with audiences around the world.

As announced this morning, “Crazy Rich Asiansdirector Jon M. Chu has just stepped up, and will be sitting in the hot seat for Universal’s long-awaited movie version.

He’s a wonderful choice for the project, and we can’t wait to see how casting shapes up.

We’ll let you know what else we hear about this and other projects.

Keep Going!
