‘Hamilton’ movie with original Broadway cast coming to theaters

Movie theaters aren’t throwing away their shot to have “Hamilton” on the big screen. Disney is bringing a film of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s stage sensation with the original Broadway cast to theaters on Oct. 15, 2021.

Miranda teased the project to Variety last week at Sundance Film Festival, saying “Hamilton” would hopefully get the big-screen treatment “sooner rather than later.” “Hamilton” director Thomas Kail filmed the stage show before the original Broadway cast members began to depart.

“What I’m most excited about [is] you all have that friend that is like, ‘I saw it with the original cast.’ We’re stealing that brag from everyone because you’re all going to see it with the original cast,” Miranda said. “We’re just trying to find the right time to do it.”
