Story: 1930s opera gets a modern makeover for the big screen. Producers Mike Medavoy and Bobby Geisler are developing a contemporary film version of famed 1930’s opera Porgy and Bess. Porgy and Bess follows the story of Porgy, a disabled beggar and his attempts to rescue Bess from her violent and jealous lover, Crown and drug dealer, Sportin’ Life who tries to lead her astray.
Details: In August 2012, Broadway.com reported, two-time Oscar-nominated director Spike Lee is in negotiations to turn the Gershwin musical Porgy and Bess into a film. The musical has been a passion project for Lee for over a decade and after seeing the current Broadway revival, Lee has begun negations with the Gershwin estate to bring the opera back to the big screen.
