Newswire: Jay Z to produce movie version of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In The Heights
Back before Hamilton and his brief cameo in Seeso’s My Brother, My Brother And Me show, Lin-Manual Miranda was the man behind the hit Broadway show In The Heights. Back in June, we reported that the Weinstein Company was developing a movie adaptation of that musical, with Jem And The Holograms‘ Jon M. Chu possibly set to direct, and now it looks like that project is actually moving forward. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jay Z has just signed on to co-produce the film, so hopefully he’ll be able to make sure it doesn’t turn out as bad as Jem And The Holograms.
It sounds like that news is pretty fresh, though, so the actual In The Heights movie is probably still fairly far off.
