Broadway Update: Skyfall writer looks to bring Bette Midler back to Broadway

John Logan, the playwright responsible for the newest James Bond movie Skyfall and other huge hits such as The Aviator, Hugo and Gladiator, has his sights set again on Broadway and his next production is one-woman show based on the life of Hollywood super-agent Sue Mengers.
His preferred choice to play Mengers is super-actress Bette Midler.
Logan's first Broadway credit was Red, which received six Tony Awards in 2010, including Best Play. He also wrote off-Broadway's Never the Sinner. In addition to a new Alice and Wonderland play starring Judi Dench and Ben Wishaw, Logan is also writing the next two Bond films.
