Stage play being made of Al Pacino movie 'Dog Day Afternoon'

07 January 2016, 19:08

New York - Playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis is turning the 1975 bank robber movie "Dog Day Afternoon" into a stage play.

Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures said Thursday that the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "Between Riverside and Crazy" will try his hand at adapting the Al Pacino movie.

In the Sidney Lumet film, Pacino plays one of two bank robbers who find themselves in a long hostage situation. The crime plays out on live television and Pacino's character, who needs the money for his lover's sex change, actually seems to care about his hostages.

It's the latest attempt by Warner Bros. to turn its films into stage works. That effort has so far made "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" into a hit in London, and two of the top grossing plays on Broadway last week, "Misery" with Bruce Willis and "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time," which Warner co-produced. It also has transformed "The Bridges of Madison County" and "Elf" for the stage.
