“The King’s Speech” headed to Broadway

And the mingling of movies and big-ticket theater continues: “The King’s Speech,” this year’s big Oscar winner, has been announced as an upcoming play, bound for Broadway in 2012. It’s the latest evolution for this history-based story, which began as a play by David Seidler and later became a movie scripted by him. Now it’s back on stage again, with presumably a bigger budget. Meanwhile, as New York Magazine notes, “The King’s Speech” film director Tom Hooper is at work on a screen version of the Broadway musical “Les Miserables.” Hmm, can Colin Firth sing?
