The Hollywood Reporter has said that Gwyneth Paltrow is in negotiations to produce the currently unnamed show with Donovan Leitch and Rick Ferrari.
While an actual show may be some time off, a source told the paper that the women in the group are considering working with the producers and possibly writing a couple of new songs. The producers are also currently negotiating with a number of Broadway scribes to write the book for the show.
