Michael Douglas - The War Of The Roses & The First Wives Club Heading To Broadway

Subscribe to Michael Douglas alerts

A stage adaptation of Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner's black comedy The War Of The Roses is heading to Broadway.

All The Way producers Jay and Cindy Gutterman are developing a theatre version of author Warren Adler's bestselling divorce novel, which the 1989 film was based on, and they are planning to debut the new production during the 2015-2016 season.

Casting details have yet to be announced.

The War of the Roses is not the only book-to-movie project to get a Broadway makeover - a musical based on Olivia Goldsmith's The First Wives Club is also heading to the stage with a soundtrack penned by Motown legends Brian and Eddie Holland and Lamont Dozier.

The new production, a heavily revised version of The First Wives Club play which debuted in San Diego, California in 2009, will launch in Chicago, Illinois next spring (15) before transferring to Broadway.

The 1996 movie starred Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton.
