Ryan Murphy To Bring 'The Boys In The Band' To Netflix

Ryan Murphy is set to adapt The Boys In The Band into a film for Netflix!

According to Broadway News, the film will be an adaptation of the Mart Crowley play, of which Murphy was a producer, which appeared on Broadway in the summer of 2018. It will feature the entire Broadway cast and will be directed by Joe Mantello, the director of the revival.

Announced last week, Murphy will also bring The Prom to Netflix. He took to Instagram to write:

"Last summer, The Boys In The Band were on Broadway, breaking house records at The Booth. THIS summer, The Boys In the Band will be filming a Netflix movie event. The incomparable Joe Mantello, who directed the Broadway revival, will direct the film adaptation. The Broadway cast of BOYS was so important to me, and as equally groundbreaking as Mart Crowley's seminal work. Everyone in the cast was out and proud...and feeling so blessed to mark the 50th anniversary of Mart's landmark play. The entire Broadway cast will reprise their roles in the film. I can't wait to be on set with Joe and Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Andrew Rannells, Matt Bomer, Charlie Carver, Robin de Jesus, Tuc Watkins, Michael Benjamin Washington and Brian Hutchison. I will be producing the film with David Stone and Ned Martel. Look for THE BOYS on Netflix in 2020."
