Kenny Ortega To Direct In the Heights Movie, Lin Manuel-Miranda Returns as Usnavi

Aight finally! Some developments from the production of the film version of Broadway's In The Heights. It's been announced that Kenny Ortega, director of such mediocrities like High School Musical and some pretty good stuff like MJ's This Is It! will be helming the musical film. He is a good director don't get me wrong, I just don't know why I'm not excited about the whole thing with him directing.

 Anyway in more exciting developments, Lin-Manual Miranda, the writer and star of the stage version of In The Heights has signed on to reprise his role of Usnavi in the film version!! Thank you God!!

Speaking of a High School Musical/In The Heights collobo, Corbin Blue of the Disney series will be playing the role of Usnavi on Broadway. What? The guy who barely sang in High School Musical? Yeap.. that's the one. Here's a preview
