Ryan Murphy Announces Boys in the Band Netflix Movie

When he’s not busy juggling countless TV projects, Ryan Murphy also puts on plays. In fact, his recent Broadway production of Mart Crowley’s The Boys in the Band is coming to Netflix. Yesterday, Murphy took to Instagram (via THR) to announce the feature film, which will stream exclusively on Netflix.

The Broadway cast of BOYS was so important to me, and as equally groundbreaking as Mart Crowley’s seminal work. Everyone in the cast was out and proud…and feeling so blessed to mark the 50th anniversary of Mart’s landmark play,” Murphy wrote in the caption. He also noted that stars Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Andrew Rannells, Matt Bomer, Charlie Carver, Robin de Jesus, Tuc Watkins, Michael Benjamin Washington and Brian Hutchison would all be reprising their roles for the feature film.

Murphy will also be producing alongside David Stone and Ned Martel. Joe Mantello, who staged the Broadway revival, will direct the film. It’s expected to arrive on the streaming platform sometime in 2020.

This particular announcement is another part of the massive $300 million deal that Murphy inked with Netflix, which will also include a feature film version of another hit Broadway musical, The Prom.
