“The goal wasn’t just artistic satisfaction, but how can we leave Puerto Rico a little better than we found it,” Lin said (via Associated Press).

The film will be an adaptation of the autobiographical musical by the late Rent playwright, Jonathan Larson. Lin-Manuel also starred in a 2014 stage production of the musical.

Jonathan Larson‘s captivating storytelling in Rent first taught me that musicals could be contemporary, true to life, and depict your own experiences. But it was Tick, Tick…Boom! that solidified that drive in me to hone my own voice as a playwright,” Lin-Manuel said in a statement.
