'In the Heights' Stars Talk About Hopes for a Sequel, Share Their Ideas

Cast members from the In the Heights movie are opening up about their hopes for a sequel!

The movie is based on the hit Broadway musical, so the source material was already there for the movie. There currently is no sequel to the stage show, so creator Lin-Manuel Miranda would have to think up a new story and music.

“We’ve already started the petition [for a sequel],” Leslie Grace, who plays Nina, told Entertainment Tonight.

Melissa Barrera, who plays Vanessa, added, “Yes! There is nothing that we would want more in the world.”
