Calling all musical theater buffs: Jason Robert Brown’s critically acclaimed musical 13 is headed to Netflix.
Deadline reports that a movie adaptation of the hit Broadway production is in the works for the streaming service. Brown will be writing new music for the upcoming “family film,” and Robert Horn is attached to adapt the script, which he originally co-wrote with Dan Elish. The adaptation, which does not yet have a release date, will be directed by Tamra Davis, who has worked on TV shows such as Empire and Santa Clarita Diet, and is also the director of classic ‘90s and 2000s films such as Billy Madison and Crossroads.
13 tells the story of Evan Goldman, who moves halfway across the country from New York City to Indiana after his parents get divorced. As he prepares for his upcoming bar mitzvah, Evan also has to manage being the new kid at school, figuring out the various cliques, while navigating friendships, relationships, and a transforming family dynamic.
The original Broadway production officially opened in October 2008 with a cast that included Ariana Grande and Elizabeth Gillies. 13 ran on Broadway until January 2009, after which it became a highly popular musical for professional and high school theater groups around the country. It remains the first and only Broadway production with an all-teenage cast.
This is not the first stage-to-screen adaptation for Brown, who is a three-time Tony Award winner. His hit musical The Last 5 Years was given the Hollywood treatment in 2014, with Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan starring in the film version.
While no information about casting or production timelines have been released, we can only imagine that the 13 movie will pose opportunities for a star-studded roster. But in case any casting directors are listening, allow us to present for your consideration: Anna Cathcart! Caleb McLaughlin! Storm Reid! Just some ideas — Netflix, call us!
