Oprah Winfrey is ready to revisit ‘The Color Purple.’
Good news below…
The movie was a film adaptation of the Alice Walker story of the same name and starred Whoopi Goldberg who led a cast made up of Winfrey, Danny Glover, Margaret Avery and Dana Ivey.
Now, Winfrey has reunited with director Steven Spielberg and Warner Bros to rebuild the movie as a musical with the full support of the revolutionary Quincy Jones and Broadway vet Scott Sanders.
We’re really excited to create a film that translates the heart and emotion we found in telling this generational story on stage. This is an incredibly powerful drama that needs to be shared.
As its early days the story’s iconic roles are yet to be filled. The case is the same for its writer and directorial positions.
