Alice Walker’s The Color Purple was adapted into a Broadway musical in 2005. Now, that musical will make the jump to the big screen, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Steven Spielberg—who directed the Oscar-nominated 1985 film adaptation of the novel—is returning to produce the new movie musical. Also signed on to produce are Oprah Winfrey (who made her acting debut in the original film) and Quincy Jones, who produced and composed the original soundtrack.
