The Color Purple Musical Could Be A Reality - Here Is The Dream Cast

The Color Purple is a 1982 epistolary novel by American author Alice Walker, which was later adapted into a film in 1985 and musical of the same name in 2005. Well, soon, the characters from Alice Walker's 1982 novel will once again come to life. This time they will come alive singing and dancing on the big screen in a movie musical adaptation of the 2005 Broadway production, which was revived several times and came to a close in 2017.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. is developing a film version of the Tony-winning stage musical. The best part? Oprah, Spielberg, Quincy Jones, and Scott Sanders have been tapped as producers. So far, the project is still in its early stages, so there's no word on an exact release date. Notwithstanding, a dream cast has been named and we are spilling the tea.
