Tharp was approached by film director James L. Brooks to choreograph sequences for his upcoming movie musical I’ll Do Anything. Company dancers cast in the film accompanied Tharp to Los Angeles where the film was shot. She choreographed and directed several large dance numbers to original music by Prince, Sinead O'Connor and Carole King. However, following audience previews, all musical elements were cut from the film.
