Something Wicked This Way Comes…

January 10, 2011

So, Salma Hayek is producing the miniseries of Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West for ABC! Now, this is for the novel by Gregory Maguire, not the musical–which is being worked on for film. Despite the sexual situations and the political nature of the book, I love reading it, but I don’t read it to analyze the text. I read it because I think it’s an interesting story. But I do think I prefer the musical version more. Elphaba + Fiyero + As Long As You’re Mine = <3.

So, for all you Wicked fans, who would you like to see play the characters in this new miniseries?

    I love the musical, adore the book. This is one of the best things I have heard in FOREVER. The book is so gritty and dark. I MUST reread it before the miniseries debuts…

    The musical/film thing is still in very early development though. It’s like Mamma Mia! in that they don’t have to make it very soon because the musical will always be popular to the public no matter when they do the movie.

    I am VERY excited now. I can’t wait to see how they picture Maguire’s Oz.

    OMG! I just had to comment because as soon as I came across your post title – I remember back during my freshmen year, my English teacher had asked us something about Harry Potter, I think, and something about “Something wicked this way comes.” For extra credit. This would have really been helpful then, lol! πŸ™‚
