Fiddler on the Roof is to be made into a film for the second time, 56 years since it was first staged as a Broadway musical.
The famous musical about Jewish life in an Eastern European shtetl was first featured in a 1964 production, before being made into a film starring Chaim Topol and Norma Crane in 1971.
The remake with be directed by Thomas Kail, who filled the same role for recent Broadway hit Hamilton, and the screenplay will be written by Steven Levenson, who penned acclaimed musical Dear Evan Hansen.
The 1971 version of the musical won three Oscars, including best score for John Williams’ music.
The musical was revived on Broadway in 2015, and a Yiddish version ran off-Broadway until this year.
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer will produce the remake.
