The music of “Hamilton” has been a part of the fabric of American culture for centuries, and it’s now getting its own film.
The musical about a wealthy New York family and their successful attempt to bring down the Hamilton dynasty, which was founded in 1793 by Aaron Burr, has been adapted for the big screen.
The movie, which stars Chris Jackson and David Oyelowo, will be directed by Andy Muschietti and stars Hamilton himself.
Muschien, who co-wrote the film with the late Bryan Cranston, also wrote the Broadway musicals “The Book of Mormon” and “Ozark.”
He will be joined by director Rob Marshall, who also wrote and directed “Hamilton.”
The musical is set to open in New York on April 1.
