Oscar-winning 'Once' to become Broadway musical
Tony-winning producers John N. Hart Jr., Jeff Sine and Fred Zollo have acquired the live theater rights to the movie with the intention of bringing it to Broadway during the 2010-2011 season.
No word yet on the creative team for the theatrical adaptation of "Once," though producers are expected to announce that shortly.
Set in Dublin, "Once" tells the story of a street musician and a Czech immigrant who meet and begin writing songs with the hopes of landing a music contract. The movie won an Oscar for the song "Falling Slowly," which was written by the principal actors, Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová.
