News: Lin-Manuel Miranda in Talks for ‘Mary Poppins’ Sequel
Feb 24, 2016
Movie Projects / News

“Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is in talks to co-star with Emily Blunt in Disney’s “Mary Poppins” sequel.

Miranda is in talks to play Jack, a lamplighter resembling the character of Bert, who was famously played by Dick Van Dyke in the 1964 classic.

John DeLuca and Marc Platt will serve as producers on the pic with “Into the Woods” helmer Rob Marshall directing the film.

Insiders confirm the new film will take place in Depression-era London (when the books were originally written and 20 years after the first film was set) and will take story lines from P.L. Travers’ books focusing on Poppins’ continued adventures with the Banks family. [source]

Video: Hamilton Cast to Perform in The GRAMMYs

The ceremony, set to air live from Los Angeles’Staples Center on Feb. 15, will feature a performance from the critically celebrated smash hit Hamilton, live from the Richard Rodgers Theatrein New York.

Says Lin-Manuel Miranda, the musical’s creator and star: “We’re going to do the opening number, scream with joy, and then celebrate the fact that we were just on the Grammys. Best night ever.”

Like the majority of Broadway productions, Hamilton — also a nominee, through its original cast recording, for best musical theater album — is generally dark Monday nights. But a live audience will be at the Richard Rodgers for the special occasion, the first time a Broadway performance will be broadcast via satellite. This is the eighth time a musical-theater production has been featured on the Grammys, but in the past the performers joined the Grammy broadcasts onstage. (American Idiot was the most recent showcased, in 2010.)

“We’ve never done any live performances in front of a televised audience,” notesHamilton producer Jeffrey Seller. “It’s always been important for us to perform in context. Once (Grammy executives) said, ‘We’ll come to you,’ we knew it would work.” Seller also credits Atlantic Records, which in September released the cast recording of Hamilton: “Our friends at Atlantic have lobbied the folks at the Grammys since day one.” [source]
