movie musicals boomlet

Since *Chicago* won Best PIc in 2002, there has been a slew of big-grossing movie musicals: Dreamgirls, Hairspray, Sweeney Todd ... and now, Mamma Mia!
So what's next?
The most likely crossovers include Jersey Boys, Spring Awakening, and In the Heights.
But *Nine* starts shooting this fall, with Rob Marshall directing and names like Cotillard, Cruz, Day-Lewis, Dench and Kidman attached.
Could the title refer to the number of Oscars they expect to win?

"Passing Strange" will be filmed by Spike Lee for cable (Showtime I think.)
