"In The Heights" going to new Heights.

We bring you this report because so much South Florida talent is involved in this production.

According to Variety, Universal Studios has bought the film rights to the hit musical, and plans to make it into a feature film.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, who created the musical, wrote the lyrics and music and has played the starring role through its Off Broadway and Broadway runs, is expected to reprise his role in the film. Miranda will produce with Meryl Poster.

Quiara Alegria Hudes, who wrote the book for the show, will pen the screen adaptation.

We can only hope that they will use as much of the original cast as possible.
