'Clue' getting stage adaptation

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Cult classic "Clue" is set to get a stage adaption.

Inspired by a board game the movie release in 1985.



Penned by original writer/director Jonathan Lynn, the production will premiere at the Bucks County Playhouse in Pennsylvania next year before touring, reported Variety.

The original movie starred Tim Curry and Madeline Kahn, and followed a number of guests at a strange house who have to solve a murder.

The adaptation comes out of the partnership between Broadway producer Araca Group and Hasbro Inc, which already has a Monopoly musical in the works.

A screen remake of the film is also in works. The new version will not be a straight remake, and will also be "action-orientated".

Fox will be overseeing the movie with Hasbro, while Josh Feldman.

The "Clue" stage adaptation will premiere in May 2017, while the movie release date is yet to be announced.
