Lin-Manuel Miranda Weighs In on Possible 'Hamilton' Movie

Lin-Manuel Miranda takes the cover of Variety magazine’s new issue.

Here’s what the 36-year-old Hamilton creator had to share with the mag:

On a possible Hamilton movie: “I haven’t had one meeting with one director. It’s something that I’m really trying to keep out of my mind until much later.”

On upcoming projects: “I think some of them might be movies, and some of them might be the germ of a TV series, and one of them might be a stage show.”

On the upcoming election: “I support Hillary, but my focus really is on getting out the vote,” he says. “People who support my candidate are gonna come out. People who do not support my candidate are gonna come out. But the more people vote, the more I think we all feel OK as a nation about who wins.”

Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda Talks Success with 'GQ'

Lin-Manuel Miranda takes the cover of GQ‘s October 2016 issue, on newsstands September 27.

Here’s what the 36-year-old Hamilton creator and Mary Poppins actor had to share:

On chasing success: “There are people who have a hit that connects with great success, and then they chase that success for the rest of their lives, and that’s their doom. You think of artists who had that big thing, and then they go back to that well again and again with diminishing returns, but the world has moved on. And then there are the artists who really stay true to themselves… Bowie didn’t release like, Ziggy Stardust 2. He was on to the next incarnation of himself. And that’s being yourself too. Chasing wherever inspiration goes, even if it’s radically different from the thing that people know you as.”

On his emotional Tony’s acceptance speech after the Orlando shooting: “I don’t see myself as chasing these moments… I would have liked nothing better than to thank all my peers and the hundreds of people who went into making Hamilton possible, but this thing happened that morning, and you have to meet that moment. I think a lot about trying to meet the moment as honestly as possible, because I don’t pretend to have any answers. In fact, I have infinitely more questions than answers. You know, the opening line to Hamilton is one long run-on fucking question, which we puzzle out but never really answer. That’s all I control: I can control how I meet the world.”
