After the success of the 2015 revival of ‘The Color Purple’ musical on Broadway,  it is being turned into a film. Oprah Winfrey, Scott Sanders, and Quincy Jones are the producers behind this adaptation. They were also the producers for the 2005 and the recent revival of the play.

It has been reported that Steven Spielberg will also be on board as a producer of this film. Spielberg directed the 1985 movie that ultimately led to Oprah to get an Oscar Nomination. It is unclear when the film is set to be released but it is in the early developmental stages.

There is no word on the cast, director, or writers. Who do think should be a part of this movie?
