According to The New York Observer, the Weinstein Company is digging through their movie collection hoping to adapt several of their productions to Broadway. On the top of the list are "Finding Neverland," "Chocolat," "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and "Cinema Paradiso" with more to follow. Get More »
