Andy Fickman will 'turn back time' to tell Cher's life story on stage.

Film director Andy Fickman is hoping to bring the songs and life story of legendary performer Cher to the stage, according to Popeater. "She's a fairly phenomenal character, as a human being I think she's one of the great icons of all time, a force to be reckoned with," Fickman said.

While Fickman remains mum on details, he revealed the show would follow the performer's career from her days as a teen singer alongside her late ex-husband Sonny Bono, to her rise as a successful solo artist and Academy Award-winning actress. No word yet on whether Cher herself  (who stars in the fall film Burlesque) will be involved in the project.

Fickman's film credits include the upcoming Kristen Bell/Kristin Chenoweth comedy You Again, Race to Witch Mountain, She's the Man and the TV adaptation of his off-Broadway musical Reefer Madness.

Cher, of course, is known for her many hit songs including "I Got You Babe," "If I Could Turn Back Time" and "Believe." She received an Academy Award for the film Moonstruck and appeared on Broadway in 1982's Come Back to the 5 & Dime Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean as well as its film adaptation.
