That could be tomorrow or it could be a year from now - I don't know the answer to that, it IS in the process, we have just set the bar really high. We're not shooting to a release date - we want the film to be unique and satisfying as the stage experience which is still terribly successful."Jon M. Chu, the director of Crazy Rich Asians and In the Heights, will direct the Wicked film.

Immediately after the 9/11 attacks, 38 planes were ordered to land in the small Canadian town of Gander, Newfoundland.

It was nominated for seven Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score of a musical, and it won for Best Direction of a Musical.
