Netflix Nabs Tick, Tick… Boom from Lin-Manuel Miranda


Netflix has acquired the rights to Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s musical adaptation of Tick, Tick… Boom, according to Variety. The adaptation is set to be directed by Miranda. According to the site, sources say Andrew Garfield is the top choice to star, but this has not been confirmed.

The script comes to us from Stephen Levinson (Dear Evan Hansen) and is based on the original stage show by the late Jonathan Larson, who created Rent. Brian Grazer and Ron Howard are on board to produce, as well as Imagine Entertainment’s Julie Oh. Julie Larson and Levinson are set to executive produce.

Tick, Tick… Boom is set in 1990 and is the story of aspiring composer Jon who is currently working as a waiter. He’s writing “Superbia,” which he is hoping will be his entry into the theater big time.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is known for the musical sensation Hamilton as well as appearing in the recent film Mary Poppins Returns. He just announced over Twitter that he will appear in the upcoming film adaptation of his musical In the Heights in the role of Piraguero.
