Lee Daniels to Film Scottsboro Boys
Lee Daniels, the director probably best known these days for his Oscar-nominated film Precious, has expressed interested in directing and adapting The Scottsboro Boys for the big screen. Susan Stroman, director and choreographer of the stage musical, would be an executive producer, with stage producer Barry Weissler also on board. This may extend the life of the stage play, which has announced a December 12th closing date.
