A Few Good Men, the 1992 film written by Aaron Sorkin, will be staged as a live-drama for NBC!
NBC has reportedly set the drama to debut in early 2017, with no casting announced. A Few Good Men originally debuted on Broadway in 1989, and then was made into the 1992 film starring Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, and Jack Nicholson. Aaron will be involved in this new incarnation.
“I am thrilled that Aaron Sorkin is coming back to NBC to adapt and produce a live broadcast of his electrifying play ‘A Few Good Men,’ which seems as timely as ever today,” Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment, said in a statement (via Variety). “Aaron is one of the most acclaimed theater, television and film authors of our time, and I am pleased that the live event business that we pioneered with musicals is now expanding into other genres and attracting artists of his caliber. I look forward to his collaboration with out ‘A-team’ producers, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, to bring another exciting piece of live drama to a broad audience.”
