Montgomery books was going to start filming in Canada. Now Variety reports that a musical of the story (which has been up in Canada since 1964) is being adapted by Kristen Thomson. Kelley Harron, who is the daughter of one of the writers of the original musical, said she's excited about this project because "The story is timeless." Also: the Toronto Star notes that "There has never really been a film based on a Canadian stage musical" and that Anne will be the first. Congrats Canada!
