'Hamilton' the Musical Will Be Filmed... Eventually

Hamilton, the smash hit Broadway musical, will be filmed with the current cast if the show’s creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s wishes come true.

The 35-year-old entertainer said this weekend that “you-couldn’t-make-it-up filmmakers have been coming to the show” and he’s been talking to producers about filming the cast before they move on.

While reports spread soon after that the filmed version was definitely happening, Lin-Manuel clarified his comments on Twitter.

“I said we WANT to film the show with this cast before the year is out. That’s all I said. There are no plans for anything yet,” he wrote. “Working on an annotated book of lyrics, a mixtape, and a way to get school kids in here all at once. On top of our schedule. We❤️you. when I announce stuff for real I PROMISE you’ll know first. I am grateful for your enthusiasm because my god how lucky we are.”
