In an interview with ComingSoon.net, Platt said, "The movie of Wicked is still a number of years down the line… We've just started its development, because the show's still so strong with eight or nine companies around the world. That's coming in the future. That's why I haven't been in a hurry, because it works so well on stage and audiences are enjoying it."
He continued to say that the story is "timeless" and wants to allow it to be explored theatrically before turning it over to the big screen.
His other Broadway credits include Pal Joey, Three Days of Rain and Total Abandon.
