Newsflash: Universal Drops In The Heights Film


In The Heights, Broadway, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Denver, Theatre, Theater, ReviewsIn The Heights was a runaway hit since it was born, spending three years on Broadway, earning four Tony Awards, and a long happy tour. Recently there has been a lot of excitement surrounding the film adaptation to star it’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and to be directed by Kenny Ortega of the High School Musical franchise. Turns out, Universal has had to make the hard choice to drop the film project which was slated to cost $37 million and be shot in New York. Part of the decision came down to the promise of big bame latin stars to fill the smaller roles was no shaping up the way it had been envisioned. Miranda remains hopefuly though, moving forward with plans to set the film up with a different studio (with perhaps a smaller budget?)
