Lin-Manuel Miranda tells the BBC what he is working on next.
The Hamilton creator and star is a bona fide movie star now, but that doesn’t mean he’s giving up his music style.
‘Tick, Tick… Boom!’ and ‘Encanto’ are among the tracks that will appear on the soundtrack to Universal’s new movie, The King’s Speech, which hits cinemas this September. They’re solid, catchy examples of his trademark in-your-face anthems, which boast creative musical playfulness and epic grandeur.
Like ‘Tick, Tick, Boom!’ you can catch Miranda performing in Central Park, but, the guy also does pretty much everything in the Broadway show, including choreography. One can’t see him here.
Apart from Disney and JK Rowling’s Wizarding World, Warner Bros. is the most active filmmaking studio in the entertainment industry. Since the exception was Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service in February 2014, it has gone from strength to strength and most of it is through the magic of Christopher Nolan, who is as into filmmaking and creativity as Lin-Manuel Miranda.
The stars of Nolan’s Interstellar included the celebrated composer Hans Zimmer, who earned a Hugo Award, Golden Globe and Grammy Award for his work.
Nolan has also landed numerous Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director, and his works have seen directors go on to win five Academy Awards. These include Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, David Fincher’s The Social Network, Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and Martin Scorsese’s The Departed.
According to Tioga.com, Thierry Henry became a Manchester United Football Club player based in the Premier League, “not because it was the title of the last film he wanted to be in but because he sensed a brilliant pitch”.
Even though Lin-Manuel Miranda has been unemployed since 2018.
