Carole King Musical to Make Its Big Screen Debut

Tony-winning and Olivier-nominated musical, Beautiful, based on the early life of the artist Carole King, is slated to be turned into a film by Sony Pictures. The movie will be produced by Playtone production company, which is owned by Tom Hanks and the screenplay will be written by Douglas McGrath, who also wrote the musical. Beautiful opened on Broadway in 2014 and made its debut on the West End last month. Michael De Luca of Sony Pictures says that he is thrilled to be able to bring the musical, which he finds inspiring and powerful, to audiences around the globe.



The story is a dramatization of King’s days as a developing songwriter, and her journey as she moved on to become a solo artist. It also features many of her most popular songs, including I Feel the Earth Move, So Far Away and Will You Love Me Tomorrow. Audiences have responded to the musical, not only because they are able to relive King’s timeless music through it, but also because they are able to experience her life story, and thus the stories behind her music. The show is nominated for eight awards in the up coming Oliviers.
