WOW, LOOKS GREAT. BEEN WAITING FOR AGES FOR A NEW LYNNE RAMSAY FILM. SHE MAKES AMAZING CINEMA. SHAME SHE WAS DUMPED FROM DIRECTING ‘THE LOVELY BONES’. SHE WOULD HAVE MADE A VERY DIFFERENT FILM, THAT WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN THE TEEN SUICIDE PORN THE JACKSON VERSION WAS………
Booooo. Apparently the $37 million price tag was too expensive, and even though the film would have had PR and the like stars in smaller roles, they seemed to think Lin-Manuel Miranda was not a big enough ‘star’ to get bums on seats.
What a fuck off. ‘In The Heights’ has been my favorite new musical of the last few seasons. But at least they did not recast Usnavi, and cast someone like mario Lopez.
Really REALLY hope another studio pick the project up.
“I have had nothing but a positive experience with Universal Pictures,” he said in a statement. “We weren’t able to make the film version of In The Heights together, but I’m looking forward to working with them in the near future. Moving forward, I’m excited to explore other options to make the In The Heights movie a reality.”
The Broadway musical ran nearly three years and won four Tony Awards, and its first tour ends in Miami on April 3.
