"We're talking to Lea Michele because she made the role of Wendla famous, and we'll see if that pans out and works with the timing of her schedule on ['Glee']," director McG tells E! News.
He continues, "I love Lea; we've talked about it. When I first got turned onto the show she was in it so it's her voice that echoes in my heart. I really think she's wonderful and we'll see where it takes us."
McG adds that he'll shoot the movie in eastern Europe, and that the adaptation will be much like the stage production, but "with a little Baz Luhrman thrown in."
