Hitchcock’s ‘Rear Window’ is Headed to Broadway!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

You read that right, folks.  ‘Rear Window‘ , the Hitchcock classic will become a stage version on Broadway.  Director Jay Russell and producer Charlie Lyons have teamed up with actor Tim Guinee (Homeland) to develop the project. Lyons and Russell have worked together before on ‘The Water Horse‘ and ‘Ladder 49‘.

According to Deadline, the rights to ‘Rear Window‘  have been sought after for many years, and this is the first time the project has ever been given the go ahead. “This is a tremendously exciting project,” said Lyons. “We are assembling a world-class team of artists to bring this timeless thriller to the stage.” Russell adds, “Woolrich’s story is deliciously dark and edgy and our plan is to make it brand new all over again.”

I’m not sure when production will start or when this will start its run, but I expect this one to be big.  Now, if this becomes a success, will this be a pre-cursor to more Hitchock film to be adapted for the stage?  Can you imagine a Broadway version of Psycho, The Birds, or North by Northwest?  How killer would that be?

Your thoughts?

Movie Quotes

[first lines]
Evey Hammond:
[voiceover] Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot... But what of the man? I know his name was Guy Fawkes and I know, in 1605, he attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament. But who was he really? What was he like? We are told to remember the idea, not the man, because a man can fail. He can be caught, he can be killed and forgotten, but 400 years later, an idea can still change the world. I've witnessed first hand the power of ideas, I've seen people kill in the name of them, and die defending them... but you cannot kiss an idea, cannot touch it, or hold it... ideas do not bleed, they do not feel pain, they do not love... And it is not an idea that I miss, it is a man... A man that made me remember the Fifth of November. A man that I will never forget.
