The iconic 1990 pic Pretty Woman, the one that made Julia Roberts a star playing a gold-hearted hooker looking for a fairy-tale ending, is on its way to becoming a Broadway musical, and the movie’s director Garry Marshall and screenwriter JF Lawton are writing the book. According to the NY Post‘s Michael Riedel, who broke the story, Marshall is currently in NY with producer Paula Wagner to meet with composers, lyricists and directors to make the project happen. The original musical was written by Lawton as an edgier tale that ended with the prostitute thrown out of the rich guy’s limo, picking up the $3,000 tossed after her, before the film was Disney-fied and became one of the biggest hits of the 1990s. Still, the subject matter is risque, and I’m imagining the songs that could line the production.
