We now have a look at Lin-Manuel Miranda bringing one of his Broadway hits to the big screen. The first trailer for “In the Heights” debuted Thursday, and it’s a major production.
The film tells the story of a mostly Hispanic neighborhood in New York City and centers around bodega owner Usnavi, played by Anthony Ramos. Judging by the trailer, the movie sticks close to the Tony-winning musical on which it is based.
The success of “In the Heights” on the Great White Way was a precursor to Miranda’s mega-successful “Hamilton.” The Warner Bros. adaptation of “In the Heights” is scheduled to hit theaters next summer.
