Paula Wagner Bringing Miss Saigon to Big Screen
Posted by: Kristy
Tom Cruise’s former production partner Paula Wagner is set to bring the famous Broadway musical Miss Saigon to the silver screen. Currently, she is eying director-of-the-moment Lee Daniels (PRECIOUS: BASED ON THE NOVEL ‘PUSH’ BY SAPPHIRE) to helm the ambitious project.
Variety reports that they are currently hiring a screenwriter and arranging financing, so it’s still in the early stages. This will be Paula’s first production under her newly formed Chestnut Ridge Productions. No word yet on whether she’ll give Tom a role in the film.
