In 2017, it was announced that the classic Death Becomes Her film is getting a Broadway musical adaptation. But it's been five years and even the musical has not yet been released.

The original movie, released in 1992, starred Goldie Hawn (as Helen) and Meryl Streep (as Madeline) as frenemies who are in love with one man, Ernest Menville (played by Bruce Willis).

Years after her divorce with Ernest, Helen publishes a book with a photo looking young and vibrant. Madeline later discovers that Helen took an immortality serum. She is able to acquire the serum and the two continue their feud for eternity.
