Lin-Manuel is at it again! To us, he is like the Energizer Bunny, going, and going, and going.
Well, this time he is working on the movie adaptation of the fantasy series The Kingkiller Chronicle, and rumor has it that he is killing it.
Since we are pretty sure the rumors are true, here are some facts:
The songs he is writing for the movie are based on the text already written by the books' author, Patrick Rothfuss, but as always, with the Miranda Twist.
The reason he chose The Kingkiller Chronicle as his next project? Simple. He's a fan. As reported by The Ringer, he publicly begged for the job as early as the summer of 2015, and he’s credited the series for inspiring at least one Hamilton track.
After discovering Miranda’s love for the series, author Patrick Rothfuss admitted dragging his feet on a potential collaboration.
“It took me a long time to realize he was actually a bit of a geek for my stuff,” Rothfuss said in a Q&A at Joco Cruise. “Which is baffling. Just baffling. It’s hard enough for me as a Midwesterner to think that other people like my work, to that extent. I’ve gotten to where I can get that. But somebody like that, no, it’s hard to parse.”
But now.. "we're are best friends forever" added the author.
“If you really want me to, I can talk about my new best friend, Lin-Manuel Miranda. Me and Lin are going to live in a tree fort forever and play Settlers of Catan all the time,” Rothfuss said, comparing the Broadway star’s smell to “cinnamon and Xbox."
WHAT THE BOOK SERIES IS ABOUT?
Kvothe is the narrator and protagonist of The Kingkiller Chronicle. He loses his father, Arliden, at a young age. Disguised as a humble tavern owner, he tells his life story and how his father Arliden, leader of a band of wandering musicians, makes a fatal mistake, writing a song about Lanre, a legendary hero who becomes the corrupted leader of the Chandrian. As punishment for his transgression, the Chandrian kill Arliden’s entire troupe. Only Kvothe survives. His search for revenge upon the Chandrian forms the backbone of The Kingkiller Chronicle.
