    @thatnerdgreg I’m gonna read your posts with a little more care in the future, because what you said was spot on and I appreciate someone who knows what they’re talking about.

    Yes, there are quite a bit of difference between the stage version of Sweeney Todd and the movie, but the changes that were made reflect the different mediums. In the stage version, ‘The Ballad of Sweeney Todd’ is needed to bookend the show and provide seamless transitions throughout the show. The movie did not need such bookends or transitions. The song ‘Look at me’ needed to be after ‘Greenfinch and Linnet bird’ to show the love connection. With the movie, only a look was needed to express this emotion. A single visual can do the work of lots of dialogue or even a whole song, if properly handled. If your stage-to-screen musical adaptation leaves everything completely intact, you’re left with the 2005 version of The Producers.

    It’s kind of similar to the 2016 film adaptation of Fences because while that was still well-liked, there were still complaints from people saying that it felt more like a filmed stage play as opposed to an actual movie.

    The differences that bother me aren’t the omissions of particular songs and whatnot, but rather just the lack of fully using the music and its dynamics for the songs that did make the cut…

    Update on the production.

    “The next Andrew Lloyd Webber show to become a movie musical will be Sunset Boulevard.

    The composer told me he’ll join Glenn Close, director Rob Ashford and studio chiefs at Paramount in February to plot their next move.

    He said a screenwriter will be hired to add to the first draft by Tom MacRae, who wrote the story for Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.”

    I didn’t know the director was chosen and he is making his motion picture debut. I will be skeptical until I see the finished product but that is probably not good news for Close.

    In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Glenn Close gives a little update on the project: “And by the end of the year, I really would love to work on the movie based on Sunset Boulevard the musical. That’s always on my mind and I think we’re getting closer …”

    This is going to come off as really bad but it is on my mind. Glenn is one of the greatest of all-time but there are two things that worry me about this project.

    1. The acting style that is used for the Stage Musical and the original film could very well be laughed at by general audiences. There will be many people who see this film who is not familiar with the musical or even the original film. I get that over-the-top is the character, and I hate when people say that, but it can definitely turn out badly.

    2. When I do think of the original film, despite being considered “older,” Gloria Swanson had a look that almost made it seem like the life she was living was impossible. Glenn in the musical, looks like she will be the villain. I blame make-up.

    My opinions of course.

    It seems it’s never really a priority and she is not getting any younger…

    The role is an old character, so it works

    I hope it gets made with another director.

    I think Scorsese would be great. It’s a musical based on a film he loves and it would be his debut with musicals.

    I’d love to see Jake Gyllenhaal as Joe, Daisy Ridley as Betty and Alfred Molina as Max.

    Although he did direct 1977’s New York, New York.

    In a recent interview with Vogue, Glenn Close said that “We have a fantastic script. I’m starring as well as producing, so I’ve been in the trenches with that one. We’re just waiting for an absolute green light, and I hope it’ll happen in the new year because we’re ready.”

    Glenn Close Reveals SUNSET BOULEVARD Film is ‘All Ready to Go’

    If they start filming this summer as she hopes, do we think they’ll have it out by winter, or do you think they’d hold onto it until next fall? Assuming this is the movie they will push to get her the Oscar, I can’t imagine they would release it any time before September, regardless of if released in 2021 or 2022.

    Best Actress - Lady Gaga (House of Gucci), Jessica Chastain (The Eyes of Tammy Faye)
