Netflix wins rights to Lin-Manuel Mirandas Tick, Tick Boom!

Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda will be making his debut as a feature film director on Netflix .
Variety reports that Netflix won the rights to Mirandas film adaptation of Tick Tick Boom! following a heated bidding war, with Andrew Garfield (who played Eduardo Saverin in The Social Network and recently won a Tony for his role in the onstage revival of Angels in America) in talks to star.
The musical was written by Jonathan Larson, who went on to write Rent. Its an autobiographical story about a composer whos filled with anxiety and doubt as he approaches the age of 30. Larson first performed Tick Tick Boom! as a solo show in 1990, and after larsons death, playwright David Auburn adapted it into a three-actor musical that debuted Off Broadway in 2001.
Dear Evan Hansen writer Steven Levenson is writing the movies script.
