In The Heights had a long and bumpy road before it finally made it to the big screen in 2021.
Written by Lin Manuel Miranda, and following a 2007 Off-Broadway run, In The Heights opened on Broadway in March 2008.
It was then that Universal Pictures decided to adapt it into a movie, but that fell through. So it sat on the shelves for another eight years before it was picked up again.
Two years later and it was cast, with filming taking place in the Summer of 2019. Then it was supposed to have a cinema release in 2020 but was held back until theatres fully reopened in 2021.
