Tom CruiseHollywood star Tom Cruise's 1988 film Cocktail is set to be turned into a Broadway musical.

A web site reports that Heywood Gould is marking the 20th anniversary of the film's release by turning his script into a New York stage show.

He has recruited Chicago producer Martin Richards to help write the music and has hinted he wants Cruise's wife Katie Holmes to reprise Elizabeth Shue's big screen role on stage.

"I am writing it as we speak. Marty Richards is on board and he's working on the score. It's far too early to talk about casting. We haven't approached anybody yet, but yes I like Katie Holmes," said Gould.
