THE ANGELS – Lin-Manuel Miranda presented this Thursday the trailer for “Tick, Tick… Boom!”, A Netflix musical that will mark the directorial debut in the cinema of the versatile artist of Puerto Rican origin.
Miranda said in a statement that this film is like “a corner of the world” that he knows “from all angles.”
“I know what it’s like to be a songwriter who fights for his dreams. I know what it is to be 20 years old and to be writing that musical that fills you with enthusiasm. I know what it’s like to be in New York with a group of friends with artistic dreams and then watch them surrender one by one to real life, while you’re still trying not to give up, “he said.
The author of “Hamilton” also assured that “Tick, Tick … Boom!” revolves around “redoubling efforts” for your craft and your passion “even when you have all the possibilities against you”.
Starring Andrew Garfield, this fall-release film adapts Jonathan Larson’s musical of the same name.
Based on Larson’s own life, the musical “Tick, Tick … Boom!” focused on a young songwriter who dreams of making it big on Broadway.
In the trailer you can see Garfield accompanied by other actors such as Vanessa Hudgens, Alexandra Shipp or Robin de Jesús.
Steven Levenson, who has worked on series such as “Fosse / Verdon” (2019), signed the script for this film.
Miranda, who in 2014 participated as an actor in an off-Broadway montage of “Tick, Tick… Boom!”, Will also be the producer of this feature film along with Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, among others.
This first preview of “Tick, Tick… Boom!” It comes in a very important week for Miranda, as on Friday the long-awaited adaptation of the musical with a lot of Latin flavor “In the Heights” will land on the big screen and on HBO Max.
Based on the Broadway hit of Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes, “In the Heights” features a cast led by Anthony Ramos and Melissa Barrera, and ventures into the New York neighborhood of Washington Heights to shape a brilliant musical in which the Latin rhythms are the absolute protagonists.
Director Jon M. Chu (“Crazy Rich Asians,” 2019) is the filmmaker behind “In the Heights.”
