Jon Favreau’s Elf heads to Broadway

A stage musical based on the 2003 movie Elf is reportedly in the works.


The Jon Favreau-directed comedy, which starred Will Ferrell, followed a human raised in the North Pole with Santa’s elves.


According to The New York Times, the stage version will debut on Broadway this November.


“[Elf the Musical is] in very good shape, very fun shape,” said show co-writer Thomas Meehan.


“It’s hard to imagine a more ideal show to run over the holidays,” the Tony Award winner added.
