What’s Going On With The Wicked Movie?

As a filmmaker, Stephen Daldry certainly has awards pedigree. He was the filmmaker behind Oscar-nominated dramas like Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Reader, and The Hours, but he was most famous for his first feature film, 2002’s Billy Elliot, which was turned into its own musical. While the filmmaker doesn’t have a lot of experience directing cinematic musicals, he has an awards presence, which is certainly what Universal would want from this film adaptation. At the time, however, there were no other reported discussions of casting or other hires.
