Weekend Poll Top Three: Fans Want to Hustle on Broadway

Weekend Poll Top Three: Fans Want to Hustle on Broadway
'American Hustle'
'American Hustle' is your top choice for a Broadway musical adaptation.

We already know that our favorite Oscar-blessed pic is going to be a Broadway musical. Now we’re turning our attention to the nine films nominated for Best Picture at the 86th Annual Academy Awards. We asked you which flick should be adapted into a Broadway musical. The results are in, and it turns out a lot of you want to do the Hustle on the Great White Way.

1. American Hustle—34%
Move over, Saturday Night Fever! The con is on with this late-‘70s set movie about an elaborate sting operation executed by people with elaborate hairdos in New Jersey. Life and death stakes make for great drama. Plus, disco balls never go out of style.


2.Wolf of Wall Street19%
Your second place choice is Martin Scorsese’s epic tale of the rise and fall of a wealthy Wall Street fat cat. Sounds perfect for Leonardo DiCaprio’s Broadway musical alter-ego, Aaron Tveit! Greed, sex, drugs, money, betrayal? That’s something worth singing about!


3. Her—12%
We have to assume you’re as attached to your technology as we are (hello, we’re a website!), so we understand why you picked Spike Jonze’s film about a writer who develops a loving bond with an operating system. Cue the soulful duets.
