NBC is considering broadcasting a live staging of Aaron Sorkin’s play A Few Good Men, Variety.com reports.

Sorkin's courtroom drama about two Marines accused of killing another serviceman played Broadway in 1989 and was adapted into a 1992 film, directed by Rob Reiner, that starred Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson and Demi Moore. Variety reports that Sorkin would revise the play for a TV staging. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who produced The Sound of Music Live and are producing Peter Pan Live!, are reported to be involved with A Few Good Men.

Sorkin is an Academy Award winner for "The Social Network" and received an Academy Award nomination for "Moneyball." His writing credits also include "The West Wing," "Stuidio 60 on the Sunset Strip," "The Newsroom" and The Farnsworth Invention.

The Sound of Music Live aired Dec. 5, 2013, with country music star Carrie Underwood and six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald. Peter Pan Live!, which features"Girls" actor Allison Williams in the title role and Christopher Walken as Captain Hook, will air Dec. 4.
