Jay-Z announced this past weekend that he will be a producer for the upcoming screen adaptation of “In The Heights,” according to Broadway.com.
The news broke at Harvey Weinstein’s annual pre-Oscars party, held this year at the Montage Beverley Hills. Jay-Z is no stranger to producing movies, as he has produced and executive produced on films such as “Annie” and “The Great Gatsby.”
The Tony-Award winning show, with music and lyrics by “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, will begin production for the big screen this spring.
