Emmy-nominated Dexter star Michael C. Hall is eyeing a return to Broadway in the Susan Stroman-helmed musical adaptation of Big Fish, according to Deadline.com. Featuring a score by Andrew Lippa and book by John August (based on his movie adaptation of Daniel Wallace's novel), Big Fish is expected to open in the spring of 2012.
Hall has received four Emmy nominations for Dexter as well as an additional nod for Six Feet Under. He has appeared on Broadway in Chicago, Cabaret and Skylight. His off-Broadway work includes Mr. Marmalade, Corpus Christi, Cymbeline, Macbeth, Timon of Athens and Henry V.
Based on the 1998 novel of the same name, Big Fish follows the troubled relationship between Edward Bloom and his son Will. On his deathbed, Edward recounts adventurous tall tales from his life as a traveling salesmen. Hall would reportedly play the part of Edward, which was played in the 2003 Tim Burton film adaptation by Ewan McGregor and Albert Finney. The movie also starred Billy Crudup and Jessica Lange.
