Lin-Manuel Miranda to Play New Role in 'Mary Poppins' Sequel

Lin-Manuel Miranda is in talks to play a new role in the upcoming Mary Poppins sequel!

The 36-year-old entertainer, who stars in and created Broadway’s smash hit musical Hamilton, will play Jack, who is a character similar to that of Bert, played by Dick Van Dyke in the original film.

The movie will “center on the now grown-up Jane and Michael Banks who have experienced a personal loss that results in the arrival of the magical Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt). She teams up with her lamplighter friend Jack (Miranda) to help the family,” according to THR.

Rob Marshall, who has previously directed the movie musicals Chicago and Into the Woods, will direct the movie. Hairspray writers Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman are writing new songs for the film.
