Guess what Broadway show is next to be filmed?
Annnnnnnd we got another one!
Filming will begin this spring and its release to be in September of 2021. But the most fascinating thing about this one is no distribution platform has been announced . . . Which means the smart and savvy producers are keeping it to themselves . . . for now.
This is the same model used by the juggernaut that is Hamilton. They shot it EARLY in their run and put it in a vault. And then they took it out years later and traded it to Disney for $75mm.
Come From Away is taking their downtime to do the same thing . . . and to put over 200 TheaterMakers to work at the same time.
Those kinds of karmic bets ALWAYS pay off.
Congrats to them, and keep your eye out for where this terrific piece ends up. (Can you say bidding war?)
