Last Unicorn heading to Broadway

Peter Beagle's beloved novel is in development as a touring musical with Josh Duhamel and Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas.

Actor Duhamel will produce the stage venture along with his wife, pop singer Fergie, as well as Connor Cochran and indie film producer Lauren Sands.

In a Sept. 19 phone interview, Cochran told that the producing team was expected to officially sign the deal to bring "The Last Unicorn" to life as a theatrical work in the coming weeks.
