Jonathan Lynn, the writer and director who brought the “Clue” board game come to life on the silver screen in the 1985 cult classic by the same name, is now at work on a stage adaptation to tour the country next year, Variety reported Tuesday.

“Developed with an eye toward the theatrical licensing market for regional and amateur troupes clamoring for a stage version of the property, “Clue” is produced in partnership with Work Light Productions (“White Christmas”) and Aged in Wood (“Cinderella,” “Avenue Q”),” Variety said.

The curtain for “Clue” will go up in May 2017 at the Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, Pa., about 35 miles north of Philadelphia, but the cast and the details of the national tour are still a mystery at this point.

A box-office dud from the Christmas movie season of 1985 featuring comedic talent such as Tim Curry, Michael McKean, Christopher Lloyd and Madeline Kahn, “Clue” the motion picture garnered a mixed reaction by professional reviewers, but has a whopping 86 percent audience score from Rotten Tomatoes.
