Don't count on that Cher musical just yet

September 23, 2010 |  5:58 pm


File this under "sad and untrue" -- looks like there's no Cher musical in the works. Yet.

The Ministry caught up with director Andy Fickman at the Hollywood premiere of his latest flick, "You Again," on Wednesday, where he addressed the rumored stage show he was said to be coordinating.

"There are things on the Internet that I read, and I'm like, 'Nobody told me,'" he said. "Literally, I was asked if Cher was an icon and I said, 'Of course she is!' But no plans for a musical [as of now]."

Fickman, who directs the likes of Jamie Lee Curtis and Kristen Bell in the revenge comedy, did speak on how he would portray the legend on stage.

"Even sitting in the audience, I would want that show to be about her life, and that incredible song catalog," Finkman said.
