The Producers Want More Sensation

Producers, The picture


This December, Universal Pictures is bringing the movie classic, "The Producers," back to the big screen

It isn't "The Producers" who feel yet satisfied with the Broadway sensation it's brought years ago. The people behind are the one responsible for bringing back the classis movie to the big screen. Tony Award-winning director and choreographer of its original Broadway production, Susan Stroman, is in hand to direct.

The film, written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, will star such actors as Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Uma Thurman and Will Ferrell. Lane and Broderick are set to play Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom, a scheming theatrical producer and his mousy CPA who hit upon the perfect plan to embezzle a fortune: raise far more money than they need to produce a sure-fire Broadway flop.

Their plans come to naught and the duo are taken completely by surprise when their new production is hailed as a toast-of-the-town hit. Thurman stars as Ulla, the Swedish secretary/slash/receptionist and would-be showgirl, and Ferrell will play the role of Franz Liebkind, the neo-Nazi playwright (and pigeon fancier) responsible for penning the "worst play ever written."
