Lin-Manuel Miranda to Produce & Compose Soundtrack for Live Action Adaptation of 'The Little Mermaid'
Lin-Manuel Miranda chats with the audience while hosting a Grease: Live panel on Monday (August 15) at The Edison Ballroom in New York City.
The 36-year-old actor and writer was joined by the musical’s star Aaron Tveit as well as directors Thomas Kail, who also directed Hamilton, and Alex Rudzinski, casting director Bernard Tesley and costume designer William Ivey Long.
It was just announced that Lin-Manuel will be teaming up with songwriter Alan Menken to write the music for the live action adaptation of The Little Mermaid, which will include a mix of pre-existing songs from the 1989 Disney animated classic movie.
Lin-Manuel will also be producing the film alongside Marc Platt and Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Production.
