Reportedly he is being chased to reprise his film role of Judge Turpin for Chichester's revival.

Katie Rowley-Jones is up for the role of Johanna.

I wish that that Alan Rickman thing were anything more assured than a rumour, but I think that's what it is at the moment.

Also, Katie Rowley Jones is surely up for Johanna, I'm hoping that the fact that she's being reported for the beggar woman is just a bad mistake.

I would love if Rickman did the role at Chichetser! He was one of the best things about the film for me (hated it mostly!) however, it was always a shame to me that we never got to see his rendition of The Judges' Johanna - perhaps this little dream of mine will finally happen!
