If it has anything to do with Jonny Depp all I have to say is BUMMER! Jean Wilder FTW!

Um, Mr. Wilder is a dude, so it's "Gene", not Jean.

Anyone wanna make the obvious comment about how this broadway musical will then again be adapted into a musical film? Making it perhaps the first time in history that a film was based on a musical based on a film that MAY be considered a remake of a movie based on a book.

I heard Depp based his character on Michael Jackson. Pretty cool when you think about it, a musical with a central character based on the real-life persona Michael Jackson. I wouldn't pay $100 to see this, but considering the success of disney musicals, I know a lot of other people will.

Do movie adaptations work? Sister Act is the best musical ever made. No need disparage that opinion unless you have actually seen it. Would somebody please adapt Blues Brothers?
