"Is this like a Noxzema commercial or what?" Twenty years after Clueless hit theaters and changed the lives of teenagers everywhere, Amy Heckerling, the film's director, has revealed that the '90s hit is getting a Broadway adaptation. 

"I've written the, what they call the book and it's a jukebox musical," she said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. A jukebox musical is a musical featuring music that is already popular, as opposed to an original score. There's no word yet on what songs will be used but we have a pretty good feeling that a few of the songs featured in the movie, like "Just A Girl," by No Doubt and Jill Sobule's "Supermodel," might be some possible choices. 

She also pointed out that Kristen Hanggi, who is best known for directing the Broadway-hit-turned-film Rock of Ages, is set to direct the musical adaptation.

No other details about the production of the musical have been released just yet but the only thing we're really anxious to know is who's going to be lucky enough to get cast as Cher?

"Well casting—that's like going to be like the main problem," Heckerling added.

We're not sure who exactly can live up to the legacy left behind by Alicia Silverstone (Cher) and her fellow castmates but we do know that, either way, we're pretty sure this will be a big hit.
