After being stuck in the hands of the Weinstein Co. for some time, the movie rights to Lin-Manuel Miranda's "In The Heights," a story about a New York bodega-owner at a crossroads after inheriting his grandmother's fortune, is now in the hands of Warner Bros.!
According to the Hollywood Reporter:
The casting process for the project was underway when the New York Times and New Yorkerexposés detailed decades' worth of sexual assault and harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein. Following those reports, Miranda and Hudes took to Twitter to say that they no longer wanted to work with Weinstein. "As a woman, I can no longer do business with The Weinstein Company. To those women who suffered directly at Harvey's hands, I extend my sincerest compassion and support," Hudes posted in October.
