Revivals and new adaptations are all the rage these days it seems. Earlier this week, we learned that Perez Hilton has been cast to play Danny Tanner in the upcoming Full House musical. Now, in the latest bit of news sure to have you buggin’, it looks like the iconic ’90s flick Clueless is headed for the bright lights of Broadway.
Amy Heckerling, the film’s writer and director, confirmed the upcoming project in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight. “I’ve written what they call ‘the book,’ and it’s a jukebox musical,” she said. Development is underway, however, she was quick to note that it might be a while before its official debut. “Everything goes so slowly,” Heckerling explained. “I thought movies took a long time.”
Still, considering the movie (which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year) featured a number of memorable music moments — “Kids in America” blasting during the opening scenes; “Rollin’ With My Homies” out in the Valley; The Mighty Mighty Bosstones playing “Where’d You Go?” at a local warehouse gig — it already has the makings of a hit.
