Film & TV News   Leslie Odom Jr. Says Filmed Stage Version of Hamilton Will Be Released...Eventually
 
The Tony winner also releases his new solo album Mr November 8.

On a recent episode of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live!, a viewer asked Tony-winning guest Leslie Odom, Jr. if there were any plans for a Hamilton movie.

The actor, who won a Tony for creating the role of Aaron Burr in the Lin-Manuel Miranda musical, didn't have information about a feature film, but provided some intel on the 2016 filming of the original cast.

“We shot it before we left,” said Odom, Jr. “They shot a version of it on stage. So that will come out eventually, I know for sure… They brought in cameras, they got in tight, they got in close-up. I haven't seen it, but I've heard from people who have seen it that it's really well done, really beautifully done.”

We'll just have to wait for it. Until then, watch the interview in the video above.
