Dear Hollywood, please cast Ariana Grande and Billie Eilish as the leads in a movie version of ‘Wicked’
If you’ve ever seen the blockbuster musical “Wicked,” which tells the untold story of Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda, the Good Witch from “The Wizard of Oz,” you’ve probably thought this musical could be a great movie.

It was reported there will be a movie version of “Wicked” to hit theaters in late 2021, but so far, we’ve had no news on casting.
