First Ryan Murphy stops working on FUNNY GIRL and then Streisand needs to find a new studio for GYPSY and now this?! When will it all end?

"[A 2016 release date] is the goal, but I don’t know whether we’ll make that goal or not"

 

How is that "confirmed"?

 

Also, we're way closer to 2016 than not. That doesn't give a lot of time.

That's an article from January 2015.

"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."
--Aristotle

Yeah, for some reason, this article is making the rounds again on social media. Surprised more people don't see how old/fake-looking it is.

The article isn't fake it was from the press in Into the Woods but the Wicked movie will not be out in 2016, I'd say 2018 at the earliest to fit in with the 15th anniversary.

There's been so much speculation on this thing over the years that I don't even care when it gets made at this point.

If it were coming out in 2016 it would've needed to start production by now.

I doubt Hollywood has any interest in whether anything times with a Broadway anniversary, since more people will see the Wicked movie than ever see the show.

That post was edited on Oct. 27. The post is on a website that hosts fans blogging about movies. The blogger may have changed something there but there are no new sources for the blogger's information and there is no news that has changed since January 2015. The news then from the producer was that 2016 was a loose goal but that they probably wouldn't have it ready for 2016. He said they'll make the film someday but wouldn't commit to any sort of firm timeline.
