Wicked is a dream project
Call it the dream project of the creators, but they are excited about this. They were planning for a long time to look forward to the movie adaptation of Wicked. However, the project seemed to be drowned when Stephen Daldry let in the middle in October.
Stephen was supposed to direct the movie. He was trapped in hectic schedules and thus left. Stephen Schwartz will be doing the screenplay along with Winnie Holzman. He was also managing the music and lyrics of the Broadway show. The Broadway musical was produced by Marc Platt therefore he will be producing the movie adaptation too.
