Newswire: Jay Z to produce movie version of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In The Heights

  • The AV Club
Back before Hamilton and his brief cameo in Seeso’s My Brother, My Brother And Me show, Lin-Manual Miranda was the man behind the hit Broadway show In The Heights. Back in June, we reported that the Weinstein Company was developing a movie adaptation of that musical, with Jem And The HologramsJon M. Chu possibly set to direct, and now it looks like that project is actually moving forward. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jay Z has just signed on to co-produce the film, so hopefully he’ll be able to make sure it doesn’t turn out as bad as Jem And The Holograms.

It sounds like that news is pretty fresh, though, so the actual In The Heights movie is probably still fairly far off.

‘A Dog’s Purpose’ Review: Canine Tear-Jerker Fails the Sniff Test
A Nicholas Sparks movie crossed with a Blue Buffalo dog food commercial, “A Dog’s Purpose” was perhaps best described by Griffin McElroy on the “My Brother, My Brother and Me” podcast, based solely on the trailer: “What’s everybody’s favorite part of ‘Marley and Me’? The end of it. So what if we just made a movie that was the end of ‘Marley and Me,’ over and over, forever?” Did I shed some tears over the doggy demises in this movie? Admittedly, yes. Does that reaction make the movie any less shameless for relying upon death to create poignancy?

Milk Carton Alert – Cousin Skeeter (and other black tween shows)

Where are the DVD releases for Cousin Skeeter, My Brother And Me and The Famous Jett Jackson? If you were pre-teen or teen in the 90s then these shows may (or may not) have been on your radar. Once upon a time Jurnee Smollett had a TV show called On Our Own that starred her alongside her siblings. It was short-lived but it was cute at the time. Are these shows getting played on TV Land, Bet, TVOne or any of the other black cable stations? Or are they lost in the ether of Hollywood doesn’t care about 90s black nostalgia?

Of all the shows mentioned above, The Famous Jett Jackson is probably the most successful of black tween shows during the 90s (this is pre- That’s So Raven). The Disney Channel even aired a made-for-tv movie giving Jett Jackson a proper farewell. Maybe these shows are too obscure,
