It's time to defy gravity -- at the movies!

Deadline reports that Universal has finally decided to take steps in transferring the hit Broadway musical, 'Wicked,' from the stage to the screen.

A prequel to 'The Wizard of Oz' that chronicles the early friendship between witches Glinda and the green-skinned Elphaba, 'Wicked' has been a monster success since its Broadway debut in 2004, averaging over $1.4 million in ticker sales per week. It has also spawned eight touring companies, and won a Tony award for its leading lady, Idina Menzel ('Enchanted').
