The ProducersAll forms of entertainment adapt each other nowadays.

Television shows come to Broadway. Movies get made into television shows and vice-versa. Successful musicals become movies. Almost everything comes from a book or gets adapted into a novelization. The list goes on.

In more than one case, a movie has been made into a Broadway show. The most obvious example of this is Mel Brooks' 'The Producers,' but there have been a myriad of others such as 'Big,' 'Legally Blonde,' several of the Disney movies (animated or otherwise) ... the list goes on. In fact, it was just announced that the 1992 Disney film 'Newsies' will be adapted into a Broadway show, as well as 'Catch Me If You Can'.

The question is: what other movies should be tapped for adaptation to a Broadway musical? 'The Producers' was an obvious choice because it's about Broadway and was originally conceived as a play. But what else is out there?

What follows after the jump are five films that could work on Broadway. They are arbitrarily selected and are not necessarily the five best. If you can think of better choices, please let us know in the comments.
