Don't worry if you couldn't make it to New York City to catch Lin-Manuel Miranda's Tony Award-winning show "In The Heights" — it's being made into a movie.

Miranda will be producing the movie alongside The Weinstein Co., but a leading actor has not yet been announced. Miranda will also star in a different movie: "Marry Poppins Returns."

"In The Heights," which was conceived by Miranda, depicts the lives of members of the Latino community in Washington Heights, in upper Manhattan, New York City. The show won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 2008 and a Grammy for Best Musical Show Album. It was also nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for drama in 2009.

Miranda has received a Grammy Award, Pulitzer Prize and a MacArthur Foundation "genius" grant. His Broadway hit "Hamilton" is up for a record-breaking 16 Tony Award nominations.
