Life is finer, life is cleaner

I'm guessing that in the coming weeks many people will have many things to share about Sweeney Todd. I thought people might like to hear some other Sondheim movie news:
Also this week came word that another Sondheim musical may be headed for the silver screen. The New York Times reported that a film version of Follies, the Sondheim musical that features a book by James Goldman, is currently in development. Attached to the project are Academy Award-winning director Sam Mendes and Emmy-winning writer Aaron Sorkin, who is currently represented on Broadway with The Farnsworth Invention. Neither casting nor a time table for the film has been announced, although Sondheim told the Times he would be willing to allow his score to be altered for a film. Sondheim also suggested that Company would make the stage-to-screen leap well.
