Great news theatre fans. One of Broadway's most popular shows is headed to the big screen. Matilda, which was actually a film prior to it's success in London and on the Great White Way, is coming soon to a theatre near you.
News of a potential film began in 2013. However due to a previous contract stipulation, a film version could not be released until at least six years after it's Broadway opening.Therefore the world will have to wait just a little while longer to see this fantastic musical.
It was also announced that composer/lyricist Tim Minchin is writing additional music for the film. Filming is scheduled to begin at the end of this year. Here's hoping the movie version will be just as good as the stage production. Fingers crossed. Until next time theatre fans.
