Twenty-five years after Julia Roberts and Richard Gere charmed the world in Pretty Woman, the classic rom-com is heading to the stage: People reports that director Garry Marshall is working on adapting the movie into a Broadway musical.

"I had so much fun doing Pretty Woman the first time around that I'm trying it again as a Broadway musical," Marshall said in a statement. "To see Vivian and Edward brought to life again with music will hopefully be something to cheer about the second time around too."

The project had been in the works on and off for years. Marshall told Deadline last year that Disney was behind the production, and film and Broadway vet Paula Wagner will serve as producer. He told People this week that he's secured the rights to bring it to the stage.

There aren't many details yet, so we can only dream up how it will work. A "Big Mistake, Huge" song is almost guaranteed. And we're rooting for a bathtub Walkman dance number.
