  • Universal Pictures has stopped the development of "In the Heights", the big screen adaptation of the stage musical, that would have been directed by Kenny Ortega and starred Lin-Manuel Miranda.

  • While the budget was relatively low, set at $37 million, attempts to assemble a top-talent cast, such as Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, failed.

  • The project was not yet greenlit, but was nearing the pre-production phase, with final casting due, as close as this week's end.
