Of all the film to stage adaptations, this is about as perfect an opportunity for a great musical as you're going to get based on the source material.

The movie plays like a musical without songs. There are great roles, and fantastic places in the story to have REAL ballads, ensemble and dance numbers. I hope they get it right.

I found the movie to be utterly charmless. The book on which it is based (a little-known novel from the thirties) is quite delightful, but something was lost in the transition from book to screen.

Hopefully if a musical does happen, it will be with better results.
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body
