The film is being produced by Lawrence Mark, who earned an Oscar nomination for his work as a producer on "Jerry Maguire."

In making the announcement, Adam Goodman said, "'Dreamgirls' is a timeless musical with a story and music that has thrilled and entertained theatergoers around the world. With Bill Condon at the helm, I know it has all the ingredients to enthrall today's movie audiences."

DreamWorks SKG was formed in October 1994 by its three principal partners- Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen. The studio is actively involved in the production of live-action motion pictures and network and cable television programs, and the distribution of both live-action and animated feature films, as well as home video entertainment.
