Four Big Names In Talks To Helm 'Wicked' Adaptation

It looks like the adaptation a decade in the making is finally picking up some steam.

BroadwayWorld is reporting that producer Marc Platt, composer Stephen Schwartz, and writer Winnie Holzman have began meeting with potential directors for the upcoming adaptation of "Wicked."

A musical that opened on Broadway in 2003, "Wicked" is the story of two girls that meet in the land of Oz; One, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood, and the other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular.

It tells the story of the creation of the Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda the Good.

The list of potential directors is a who's who of Hollywood right now: J.J. Abrams (upcoming "Star Wars Episode VII"), James Mangold ("The Wolverine"), Rob Marshall ("Chicago"), and Ryan Murphy ("Glee").

While I see the film going to either Marshall or Murphy for obvious reasons I would really like to see Mangold step up to the plate.

He did, after all, make "Walk the Line" so he has some history with music, and he is an excellent story teller, and can dig deep into actors for depth and emotion.
