ABC/Heidi Gutman(LOS ANGELES) — Lin-Manuel Miranda, star and creator of the smash Broadway musical Hamilton, will lend his talents to feature film and TV series adaptations of Pat Rothfuss’ The Kingkiller Chronicle.
He’ll serve as creative producer, while composing original music and writing songs. Miranda also has an option to be involved in future stage productions. The series of books and novellas, which centers on the wizard Kvothe, has sold 10 million copies.
Says Miranda, “Pat Rothfuss’ Kingkiller books are among the most read and re-read in our home…Pat also writes about the act of making music more beautifully than any novelist I’ve ever read. I can’t wait to play a part in bringing this world to life onscreen.”
