Ariana for Wicked movie?

Ariana Grande is being "seriously considered" for a role in the movie adaptation of Broadway classic Wicked.

Last year, the 7 Rings hitmaker performed a cover of The Wizard And I from the The Wizard of Oz prequel during NBC's A Very Wicked Halloween special, and later gushed that she felt "grateful to have been a part of something so special."

Speaking to Gay Times magazine, Stephen Schwartz, composer of the Broadway classic, suggested the star impressed with her rendition, adding they'd "be fools" not to "seriously consider" the pop star for a role in the upcoming film.

"The Wicked movie is not quite far enough along yet for us to really be talking about specific casting, but obviously everyone is very aware of the presence in the world of Ariana Grande and her extraordinary talent," he said. "We'd be fools for her not to be being seriously considered."

While Schwartz went on to emphasise the filmmakers are considering a number of stars for the flick, he teased: "Let's just say that all of us are very aware of Ariana Grande."

Wicked is slated for release on Dec. 22 2021.
