Former “Spider-Man” and “Hacksaw Ridge” star Andrew Garfield will lead the cast of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Tick, Tick… Boom!” for Netflix and Imagine Entertainment.
Set in 1990, the story follows an aspiring theater composer who is waiting tables in New York City while writing “Superbia,” which he hopes will be the next great American musical and finally give him his big break. As he approaches his 30th birthday, he is overcome with anxiety, wondering if his dream is worth the cost.
Miranda is attached to direct the project based on the original autobiographical stage show by late “Rent” creator Jonathan Larson. “Dear Evan Hansen” writer Steven Levenson is adapting the script.
Miranda, Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Julie Oh are producing.
