Singing sensation Susan Boyle's life story is headed to the big screen as Fox Searchlight plans to adapt the musical I Dreamed a Dream into a major motion picture, according to Deadline.com. No casting, director, screenwriter or timeline have been announced.
The musical tells the story of Boyle’s journey from her humble beginnings in a large working class Scottish family to her current status as a global star, following her life-changing appearance on Britain’s Got Talent.
I Dreamed a Dream premiered at Newcastle’s Theatre Royal earlier this year. The musical then went on tour, playing Aberdeen, Bradford, Liverpool, Dublin, Bristol, Southend, Cardiff, Birmingham, Inverness and Manchester. Future productions are planned for Australia and London’s West End.
