‘The King’s Speech’ Is Broadway-Bound

ALTThe King’s Speech swept almost all the big categories at the most recent Oscars ceremony, and the Tonys might be next.

The British drama — which was originally developed as a play by screenwriter David Seidler — is set to make a run on Broadway in the fall of 2012.

Casting is reportedly under way to find a replacement for the major roles, including that of the stammering King George VI of Britain, played by Colin Firth in the movie.


The film’s director, Tom Hooper, will not be involved in the theatrical production, as he is currently prepping a(nother) big-screen version of the beloved Les Miserables.
