Michael C. Hall in Negotiation to Star in 'Big Fish' Musical


Michael C. Hall


The 2003 movie by Tim Burton is expected to be a grand musical production starring the TV actor as Edward Bloom.

Michael C. Hall could be the lead star in a Broadway adaptation of Tim Burton's movie "Big Fish". The "Dexter" star, according to Deadline, is negotiating with the musical stage production to replace first candidate, Hugh Jackman, next year.

John August who wrote the film's screenplay based on the novel by Daniel Wallace, has written a book for the musical. Susan Stroman will direct, Andrew Lippa wrote the music, and Bruce Cohen and Dan Jinks are producing. Deadline reported, "It is expected to be quite the stage event."

If a deal is struck, Hall will play Edward Bloom, the man who filled his son's head with so many unbelievable adventures that occurred during the course of his life. In the movie, both Ewan McGregor and Albert Finney played the role. The part was originally given to Jackman but his movie schedule prevented him from a commitment.

Hall himself has been involved with a number of musicals such as "Cabaret" and "Chicago".
