In The Heights Movie On Track

This is great news for all you In The Heights fans. Those of you who read my blogs know how much I love the show and I really hope that the film is a big success. It was announced today that Marc Klein,whose writing credits include "Serendipity,"A Good Year," and the upcoming "TNI" has been hired to adapt the musical for the big screen. Universal Pictures who is producing the film had originally hired the musicals book writer and Tony nominee Quiara Alegria Hudes to pen the screenplay but have now opted to bring in Klein instead. According to an article in Variety it was to"give the priority project a fresh set of eyes." It was also announced that the musicals creator and original star Lin-Manuel Miranda will reprise hie role of Usnavi for the film. Shooting is set to begin in New York this August. I can't wait.
