'Wicked' Coming To The Big Screen Sooner Than Later
THR: With Les Mis a hit, why haven't you greenlighted Wicked?My only concern is whether or not this will fit into the canon of The Wizard of Oz and Oz: The Great and Powerful -- especially since we're getting a "definitive" origin story of the witch in the new Sam Raimi prequel.
Fogelson: Wicked has been an enormous win for this company [Universal is majority owner of the Broadway musical]. The way it works, we should be in agreement together on when the right time to do this is. But I will tell you I believe that we are collectively moving toward Wicked coming to the screen sooner rather than later.
