Pride, the comedy about a group of protestors during the mining strikes, who come from an LGBTQ+ background, is set to be made into a stage musical.
The film starred Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West and Andrew Scott.
Director Matthew Warchus has revealed work is underway on the adaptation.
He told the Hollywood Reporter: “When I was sent the screenplay, my immediate reply was that I’d love to do it and are the stage adaptation rights available as it should be a musical.”
He added: “We are working on the musical now. Stephen Beresford, who wrote the screenplay, has written the adaptation already and we have songwriters working on it who are already delivering material. So this is becoming a reality.”
No details about where or when the musical might debut have been announced.
