It's Finally Happening — Hamilton Is Reportedly Coming to a Movie Theater Near You!
If you weren't one of the lucky few who got to watch Hamilton on Broadway, you're in luck, because the hip-hop musical is reportedly hitting movie theaters soon! According to The Wall Street Journal, Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox are apparently bidding on an original cast recording of Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical to show in theaters around the country. The show stars Miranda as Alexander Hamilton, Jonathan Groff as King George III, Leslie Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr, Christopher Jackson as George Washington, Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton, Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, and Reneé Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler.
Back in 2016, Miranda revealed that the cast secretly recorded a run-through of the musical and that it would be shown in the future. "What are we doing with that footage? No idea. Throwing it in a vault at Gringotts for a bit [probably]," he tweeted, referencing Harry Potter. "But we're getting it." Well, it looks like we finally know.
