Since nothing of note is going on right now, I decided to finish the ‘Andrew’ section of the site. Go check it out to read about Andrew, his career, both in movies/TV and theatre (every project has it’s own page, so you have all the information about a project that interests you in one place) and fun facts. Hope you will enjoy it and maybe find out some things you didn’t know before.
Andrew Garfield will star in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Tick, Tick… Boom!” for Netflix.
Variety first reported in June that Netflix had won the movie rights to “Tick, Tick … Boom!” with “Hamilton” creator Miranda attached to direct and Garfield the top choice to star. His deal was announced on Wednesday.
“Dear Evan Hansen” writer Steven Levenson is adapting the script based on the original stage show by late “Rent” creator Jonathan Larson. Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Julie Oh of Imagine Entertainment are producing along with Miranda. Julie Larson and Levenson are executive producing.
“Tick, Tick … Boom!” is set in 1990 and tells the story of 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.
According to Deadline, Andrew is set to join BBC’s remake of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’.
Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield and Chewing Gum star and creator Michaela Coel are to set to sashay away on the BBC’s remake of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
The pair are the latest A-list stars to join the show. They will feature alongside Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, Spice Girls’ Geri Horner and Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall.
The eight-part show, which will air on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer, will also feature British presenters Graham Norton and Alan Carr and Michelle Visage, who has judged eight seasons of the U.S. format and four seasons of the All-Stars spinoff.
Garfield added, “The creativity is always totally outside the box and it’s one of the many reasons I watch and love this show.”
According to Variety, Andrew is in talks to play Jon in an upcoming Netflix musical ‘Tick, Tick… Boom!’, though nothing has been finalized yet.
Following a heated bidding war, Netflix has walked away with the rights to “Tick, Tick … Boom!” a musical adaptation to be directed by “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Sources say Andrew Garfield is the top choice to star, though no deal is done.
“Tick, Tick … Boom!” is set in 1990 and tells the story of Jon, 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.
If a deal closes for Garfield to star, the role would be very timely for the actor, who is coming off his Tony-winning role in the “Angels in America” revival. Garfield also recently landed the role of Jim Bakker opposite Jessica Chastain in the Fox Searchlight pic “The Eyes of Tammy Faye.”
