  • Marc Klein has signed up to write a new script for the musical "In the Heights" for Universal Pictures.

  • The original's writer, Quiara Alegria Hudes, was previously set to write the big screen adaptation.

  • Klein will work closely with the musical's creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who will also star in the film. Most of the stage musical's numbers will remain in the film, as well as one new song written specifically for the film.

  • Filming is expected to start in August 2010 in New York, where the story is set.
