Lea Michele in Talks for Spring Awakening Movie

Sure, Lea Michele didn't get the highly coveted role of Eponine in the big-screen musical of Les Miserables, but this could prove a nice consolation prize: McG says he's in talks with Michele for his movie version of Spring Awakening, in which she'd reprise her lead role from the Broadway production. "When I first got turned onto the show she was in it so it's her voice that echoes in my heart," butt paintball practitioner McG told E! "I really think she's wonderful and we'll see where it takes us." But will Michele's original co-star Jonathan Groff join her, or will his new Starz series ruin everything?
