[Movies] Does Oz The Great And Powerful Hurt the Chances of Wicked Getting Made?
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 02.20.2013



The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Universal Pictures chairman Adam Fogelson who talked about the potential future for a film adaptation of the hit stage musical Wicked.

Disney will be releasing Oz The Great And Powerful on March 8, which is an original story that sets itself up as a prequel to the original 1930's movie The Wizard of Oz. Wicked is another prequel story to the movie that goes in a different direction. It originated as a novel in 1995 by Gregory Maguire before it was adapted as a musical for the stage.

According to 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."
