Let’s keep going! Recent Golden Globe winner Amanda Seyfried is set to star in a musical adaptation of Thelma and Louise, possibly opposite Evan Rachel Wood. Variety reports the pair are in NYC while the show undergoes some development workshops. 

The film’s Oscar-winning screenwriter Callie Khouri, is back to oversee the project (an exact title was not provided). The score is penned by indie singer-songwriter Neko Case, with Halley Feiffer serving as book writer. 

Trip Cullman was reported to be attached when the project was first announced in 2021. Further details are scarce, as is the norm for any show in development. 

Both stars are no strangers to musicals. Seyfried played Sophie in the film adaptation of Mamma Mia!, opposite legends like Meryl Streep and Christine Baranski. Wood starred in the Beatles jukebox romance movie Across the Universe and voiced a major surprise character in Frozen 2.
