Lin-Manuel Miranda used social media to announce a new project in the works: A film and TV series adaptation for the popular fantasy series "The Kingkiller Chronicle."
Broadway's "Hamilton" mastermind is the creative producer for both projects. He will serve as "musical mastermind," which means he will write and compose the music.
In partnership with Lionsgate Films, Miranda will work alongside the book series author Pat Rothfuss.
“Pat Rothfuss’ ‘Kingkiller’ books are among the most read and re-read in our home," Miranda told Variety. "It’s a world you want to spend lifetimes in, as his many fans will attest. Pat also writes about the act of making music more beautifully than any novelist I’ve ever read. I can’t wait to play a part in bringing this world to life onscreen.”
Miranda's latest contribution to film was with Disney's box-office hit "Moana," which premiered Thanksgiving weekend; he wrote the score.
