Matthew Bourne is developing Edward Scissorhands into a ballet to debut this year. Here is an excerpt from an article in which he talks about it(from villagevoice.com):
"I put the idea to do [Scissorhands] onstage to [composer] Danny Elfman first," Bourne continues, "and then to Tim. I was quite open-minded toward a musical, but they wanted it like the other pieces. They were excited by the prospect of non-verbal theater. It came from them, really. We've written the scenario for this version. It's quite different from the 1990 film. Danny's written some more music and it's starting to be designed. We hope to go into rehearsal by September. We're quite far down the road."
