Post 2008= The year of the NEW movie version of "Carousel&qu
Dear "Carousel" Fans,

Later during this year, a new movie version of "Carousel" will arrive at a movie theatre near you!

I hope that the cast is good, and that the singing is good, and that the movie presents a fresh, inventive, relevant take on a classic musical that many people already know about!

If you'd like more information about this new movie musical version of "Carousel", keep checking www.imdb.com (search for "Carousel") for new information about the movie.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

I love this musical and thought they did a really good job in the old movie. I don't want to see them destroy it and not be able to put all the songs in it!!!!!!

Yeah, 2010 - if ever. CBS/Columbia has publicly announced the re-doing of "My Fair Lady" but I don't think "Carousel" will see the light of day THIS year - especially if no casting has been done.

Why the heck would they do a remake?! I thought the original film was fine.
