Glenn Close to Bring 'Sunset Boulevard' Musical to the Screen

Glenn Close to Bring 'Sunset Boulevard' Musical to the Screen

Glenn Close‘s movie adaptation of the Broadway musical Sunset Boulevard is moving one step closer to reaching the big screen.

The film has found a director in Tony-winning choreographer Rob Ashford, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Glenn will be reprising her role as Norma Desmond, “a faded and deluded silent-screen star who ensnares a down-on-his-luck screenwriter into her fantasy of making a comeback.” She previously played the role in the original 1994 Broadway production and won a Tony Award. She later played the part again in the 2017 revival.

The movie is set to begin production in the fall.
