"Death Becomes Her" was directed by Robert Zemeckis and starred Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn as two rivals who drink a potion that promises eternal life but instead turns them into living corpses.

Chenoweth will appear in the stage adaptation as Madeline, the character Streep played in the film, Variety reported.

The stage version has no creative team set or production timeline in place.

Chenoweth is known for starring in stage productions such as "Wicked," "Promises" and "On the Twentieth Century" among others and recently appeared in television series "American Gods."

Universal Theatrical Group has produced plays that include "Billy Elliot" and "Bring It On." It is also working on a new musical based on the Bee Gees.
