Sleepless in Seattle to Become Musical for Some Reason


Yet again, the announcement of an unlikely musical is the savior of a slow news day: Sleepless in Seattle will follow previously adapted Tom Hanks movies Big and Catch Me If You Can to the stage, with a planned opening on Broadway in 2010. David S. Ward and Nora Ephron will write the book, and Edward Zwick will purportedly direct. Surely producers are already fighting over the musical rights to Saving Private Ryan. [ArtsBeat/NYT]
