Chicago cast to reunite at Oscars
Feb 11, 2013, 17:01 GMT
The cast of 'Chicago' will reunite at the Oscars later this month.
Stars Renee Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Queen Latifah and Richard Gere are to come together at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood for the Academy Awards on February 24 - a decade after the film won Best Picture at the 2003 ceremony - and producers of the film and ceremony Craig Zadan and Neil Meron feel their appearance will be very 'appropriate' for the evening.
Neil said: 'In a night of celebration of the music of the movies, we find it very appropriate.'
Craig added: 'We can't talk about what they're going to do!'
The duo have also promised a 'staggering' amount of performers and have realised there aren't enough dressing rooms to cater to all the guests.
Neil continued: 'I don't think any Oscars have been as performance-based. When you do an Oscar show, you don't have a dressing room problem. The presenters don't get dressing rooms. And how many people perform on the Oscars, like one or two?
'We have a staggering amount of performers, and each of them needs a dressing room .. We're measuring the magnitude of how big the show is by the fact that we don't have [enough] dressing rooms.'
Stars who are already confirmed to share their talent at the event include Barbara Streisand and singer/songwriters Adele and Norah Jones - who will sing their Oscar-nominated tracks 'Skyfall' and 'Everybody Needs a Best Friend'.
Host Seth MacFarlane will also share his singing voice for the audience and the producers are confident the funnyman will do a 'great' job on the night.
Neil said: 'He's going to be very present as a host, as a host should. Seth really does understand and have great reverence for the music of the movies. He loves it.'
