I DO NOT WANT MCG DIRECTING ‘SPRING AWAKENINGS’.
E! Online has just revealed that Spring Awakening’s original Wendla, GLEE star Lea Michele, is being courted for her old role in the upcoming film version of the show. E! reports that the film’s director, McG, told them that they’re hoping the film’s schedule can coincide with her GLEE committments to make this happen.
He tells E!: “I love Lea; we’ve talked about it…When I first got turned onto the show she was in it so it’s her voice that echoes in my heart. I really think she’s wonderful and we’ll see where it takes us.”
No production timeline has been announced.
He adds: “We’re talking to Lea Michele because she made the role of Wendla famous and we’ll see if that pans out and works with the timing of her schedule on [Glee].”

As BroadwayWorld reported back in 2010, Terminator Salvation director McG will bring the “Spring Awakening” to the big screen, developing it with original book and lyrics writer Steven Sater.
FOR HIS NEW MOVIE, ‘TWENTY, THIRTY’.
