‘Silver Linings Playbook’ to become a musical

“Silver Linings Playbook,” the dark comedy about two emotionally troubled misfits who find each other, didn’t win many Oscars in February, but perhaps it’ll do better next year, when it returns as an all-singing musical. “Like ‘Les Mis,’ but contemporary and with dancing,” explained one hopeful producer, speaking off the record in advance of a major announcement later today. Broadway legend Kristen Chenoweth will take over the role played by Jennifer Lawrence; Hugh Jackman will play Bradley Cooper’s role, and Nathan Lane is in talks to play Jackman’s character’s father, a role played on screen by Robert De Niro.  Chenoweth and Jackman are said to already be rehearsing the movie’s sure-to-be-a-hit first song, a tender love duet called “Off My Meds.” Watch for it during the holiday season.
