Chess I have always liked. I know there have been many different versions released. I was reading a short interview by Tim Rice he was asked this question. He said yes. What do you think? If cast properly and they agreed on a final story I think it would do OK. Don't get me wrong I don't think it would come anywhere near the global success of Mamma Mia but I think it would be a great to see
It would be wonderful to see Chess as a film, but it would need to be written, designed, cast and directed VERY well to make it work. Musical films in recent years have generally been awful, but Chess could be brilliant, though I would have my fears as to them finding all the right ingredients to make it so. To begin with they would end up casting big names who couldn't sing and though Les Mis, Phantom and Sweeney Todd 'got away' with this, Chess would be sure to get slated unless all elements were truly wonderful. It could be done, but sadly I doubt it ever will.
