Glenn Close eyeing Oscar nom. 8 as she'll star in 'Sunset Boulevard' musical film

Glenn Close will be reprising her Tony-winning role in an upcoming film adaptation of the 'Sunset Boulevard' musical, and now it's been confirmed that it'll be directed by Tony-winning choreographer Rob Ashford.

Andrew Lloyd Webber scored the stage musical, and will be one of the producers of the film. No start of production date yet, but it will be the same as the classic 1950 movie starring Gloria Swanson (but, you know, with music and dancing).

A quick summary: Norma Desmond, a faded and deluded silent-screen star ensnares a down-on-his-luck screenwriter into her fantasy of making a comeback. A byzantine love story ensues that ends, ultimately, in tragedy.
