Because there’s nothing more family-friendly than the story of a corporate lawyer falling in love with a prostitute while throwing money at her, Variety reports that a musical based on the 1990 romantic comedy Pretty Woman has inched a bit closer to Broadway. The film’s director, Garry Marshall, has been trying to get a musical made out of his film since 2001, but only now has he found enough interested parties come together to make it more of a thing. The film’s screenwriter, J.F. Lawton, will work with Marshall on the book.
