Lea Michele might be full of glee, but for an entirely different reason, because the Broadway-turned-TV star is in talks to reprise her leading role in the movie adaptation of the hit musical "Spring Awakening."
Though discussions are still the early stages, they seem to have promise. "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]," the flick's director, McG (no, not his given name) told E Online.
He continued to gush, "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."
The show, which nabbed eight Tony Awards, is based on an 1891 German play of the same name and centers around a group of teenagers dealing with everything from abortion, to rape, to suicide, to masturbation and even some S&M. You know, basic teenage stuff—actually, maybe not so much.
Michele stepped onto the silver screen last year with a small part in Garry Marshall's "New Year's Eve," and has an upcoming gig as the voice of Dorothy in the animated "Dorothy of Oz," but "Spring Awakening" would mark her first time as a leading lady in a feature film. It's a big step, but we think Rachel Berry's ready.
