It seems like tons of hit movies from the pre-2000′s wind up with musical adaptions on Broadway, and now it seems ‘Austin Powers’ is next on the list. Following in the footsteps of ‘Legally Blonde,’ ‘Footloose,’ ‘Rocky’ and ‘Sister Act,’ Mike Myers is reportedly in talks to turn his popular movie into a Broadway musical.
Poor Rocky Balboa. Looks like he’s never going to get to retire. Worse yet, now he has to sing and dance, too.
Sylvester Stallone is collaborating with world champion boxing brothers Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko to produce ‘Rocky: The Musical,’ a stage play based on Stallone’s Oscar-winning film ‘Rocky.’
Soon you’ll be able to see Billie Joe Armstrong, the front man for Green Day, on the big screen.
Green Day’s Album “American Idiot” was already successfully adapted as a Broadway stage musical and now a cinematic version is in the works. Armstrong has signed on to play the role of St. Jimmy (The same role he played numerous times on Broadway).
