    With Fences doing very well this year and getting Viola Davis an Oscar, but also being as powerful as it was on stage.

    Does anyone have potential play adaptations or musical adaptations that could leave an impact and be huge Oscar contenders?

    An example of mine is The Cover of Life. It is an amazing story about three women in Louisiana. They all live in the same house with Aunt Ola, their mother in law. They live together because all of their husbands are out fighting in WW2. They are all sister in Laws. A woman, Kate, from life magazine in New York comes to live with them and write a story on the women to put on the cover of life. The women are Tood, Weetsie, and Sybil. Tood struggles with wanting more from her life, Weetsie is traditional and vying to be the woman her husband wants, and Sybil struggles with loneliness and the effects of war the most. Tood, Aunt Ola, and Sybil would be the awards contenders. Especially Sybil. There is only one male role which will set it apart. It also has such a great feminist message.

    Who I would cast:
    Tood – Hailee Steinfeld (lead)
    Weetsie – Emilia Clarke (supporting)
    Sybil – Rachel McAdams (supporting)
    Aunt Ola – Kathy Bates (supporting)
    Kate – Jessica Chastain (lead)
    Addie Mae – Kristen Chenoweth (brief comedic relief)
    Tommy – Josh Hutcherson (supporting)

    Perhaps The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time? Best actor for sure.

    I would love to see a film adaptation of Annie Baker’s The Flick.

    Jonah Hill as Sam
    Ashton Sanders as Avery
    Shailene Woodley as Rose
