Brett Ratner says his "dream project" is to direct the film adaptation of Wicked. Oh, you are definitely defying gravity on this one, Brett! He tells the Times that "people who played it safe, they weren’t really going anywhere," and that he likes to "challenge" himself. He's already onboard to direct The 39 Clues, and the Wicked movie hasn't seen much movement in over a year, so this definitely falls in "we'll believe it when we see it" territory, but holy God, just imagine Brett Ratner Brett Ratnerizing a talking goatman.
