John Bailey has been cast alongside Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo in Wicked. He is best known for playing Anthony, Viscount Bridgerton, in the hit Netflix show Bridgerton. The film is a subversive take on the Wizard of Oz lore by focusing on the Wicked Witch of the West and tracing the origins of how she became the antagonistic centre of the story.

The film is directed by John M Chu, who rose to international fame with Crazy Rich Asians and In the Heights. The musical/fantasy is based on the 2003 musical of the same name written by composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz.

Bailey will play Fiyero Tigelaar, who forms the apex of the love triangle between himself, Elphaba, and Galinda. Cynthia Erivo plays Galinda, the wicked witch of the west while Ariana Grande plays Galinda, the good witch of the north. The film also stars Isaac Cole Powell, Ali Stroker, Nobert Leo Butz, Robbie Fairchild, and David Hyde Pierce.

The filming, which took place in the UK, wrapped up in November 2021. The Universal Pictures film is currently scheduled to release during Christmans week, on 21 December 2022.
