The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants could soon be following in the footsteps of Mean Girls and Legally Blonde!
According to The Wrap, there are currently plans underway to bring The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants to the stage.
News of a stage adaptation comes from Alcon Entertainment and Alloy Entertainment, who produced the 2005 book-to-film adaptation which starred Blake Lively, Alexis Bledel, America Ferrera, and Amber Tamblyn as four teenage best friends who stumble upon a pair of magical jeans that miraculously fits each of them perfectly.
The companies jointly announced on Tuesday that they’re looking to give Tibby, Lena, Bridget and Carmen’s story of friendship the musical theater treatment.
Rights for the stage play adaptation have been acquired by Blue Spruce Productions, who has in turn tapped Scott Delman to serve as lead producer on the upcoming project. Delman is a Tony Award-winning theatrical producer who has worked on the likes of Broadway’s Hello, Dolly! revival and fellow movie-to-musical adaptation, Mean Girls.
It definitely sounds as though the musical theater production of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is in pretty good hands with Delman on board, but we’ll be curious to find out who else gets tapped to work on the production.
As exciting as it is to hear that a musical adaptation of the coming-of-age tale is in the works, we’re sure fans far and wide are still holding out hope for a third installment of the Sisterhood movies.
The good news is Lively, Tamblyn, Bledel and Ferrera (who are actual friendship goals in real life) have all expressed interest in returning to reprise their roles. Here’s hoping that third film comes to fruition somewhere down the line!
