This Is Us

Broadway is about to get a whole lot more romantic; it's been announced that The Notebook, AKA the most heart-string tugging film/novel of all time, is coming to the stage as a musical.

Singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson shared the news on NBC's Today Show yesterday, and revealed that she has been developing the musical for over a year.

The 2004 movie starred Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, and sparked a real-life love story between the pair as well as love blossoming on-screen.

The original novel was published in 1996 and shot Sparks to fame.

A producer on the NBC family drama This Is Us is writing the show, Bekah Brunstetter, and it will be a collaboration between her and Nicholas Sparks; the novel's original author.

The writer posted his delight on Twitter, saying that he is "thrilled" to be part of the team who will adapt the story to the stage.

The story follows a young couple in the 1940s who fall hopelessly and passionately in love, but are forced to part ways after turbulence between her family and Gosling's character.

They later reconnect, and the tale flicks between the 20th century and modern day, where the protagonist chronicles how time has impacted their lives in a tragic way.

Despite mediocre initial film reviews, the movie became a smash hit which has remained iconic in the romantic-drama genre.

Gosling and McAdams were relatively unknown at the time of filming, but their chemistry was undeniably. The pair met on set, and dated from 2005 until 2007, and again in 2008 before splitting up for good.

Casting news has yet to be revealed, and no opening date has been announced for the Broadway show.

More recently, movies such as Pretty Woman and Mean Girls have been adapted to the stage.

We can't wait to see the show, it's sure to bring the romance.



Despite a confirmation from film director, Morgan Spurlock that a sequel to One Direction’s hit film This Is Us was happening, it seems unfortunately for fans that is not the case.  

The band’s record label has officially come out and said that despite recent reports, a sequel to the band’s documentary film won’t be happening.

This Is Us showed what life was like for boys on the road during their Where We Are Tour last year.

The film was such a hit with fans that a sequel seemed likely, but Columbia Records have stated that director Spurlock was not filming a documentary sequel for the band.

“(Spurlock) is not involved with any filming with the band. There’s always filming on the road, but not for a second feature film.”

This goes against what the director said last month, where he even said that filming was already taking place in South America for a film’s follow up.

1D have just finished their tour in South America and will be coming to Dublin at the end of May.

So there may be no This Is Us sequel, but at least the lads will be hitting Irish shores soon!



The One Direction boys are to star in a follow-up to their movie This Is Us – and they’re hoping for an Oscar this time!

The boys kicked off their Where We Are world tour this month and their filmmaker and producer pal Ben Winston joined them on the road to shoot the movie sequel.


The director behind last year’s 1D box office smash Morgan Spurlock confirmed the news saying, “Ben Winston is with the band on their world tour filming what happens. He worked with me and is a great producer.”

This time the 1D stars and music boss Simon Cowell are hoping for Oscar success!

“I know Simon Cowell wants the band to get awards for this and was upset when they missed out on being nominated in the music category for an Oscar on our film”, the director said of the band’s Best Original Song chances for Best Song Ever.

“It was a good song and I was surprised that they weren’t even considered. This time he will want them to try again,” he added.
