Is Dexter heading to Broadway? Emmy winner Michael C. Hall — whose contract with the Showtime series is up for renewal next month — is in negotiations to star in the Big Fish musical.
“Susan Stroan will direct the stage adaptation of the Tim Burton film, which will feature music by Andrew Lippa. Hugh Jackman was originally rumored to star in the production, but ‘his movie schedule got in the way and the producers turned to Hall,” BroadwayWorld.com writes.
Michael appeared in Off-Broadway productions of Macbeth and Cymbeline before finding fame with his groundbreaking cable crime drama.
Big Fish is being eyed for a Spring 2012 opening.
