Gregory Diaz IV is making a splash in two brand new trailers for his upcoming movie musical In The Heights!
The 15-year-old stars as Sonny in the film, which is the movie adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s Tony-award winning Broadway musical.
Here’s a synopsis: Lights up on Washington Heights, a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience, where the streets are made of music and little dreams become big… The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi, who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.
Also starring the film include Anthony Ramos in the lead role of Usnavi, Corey Hawkins as Benny, Leslie Grace as Nina, Melissa Barrera as Vanessa, Olga Merediz as Abuela Claudia, Daphne Rubin-Vega as Daniela, Stephanie Beatriz as Carla, Dascha Polanco as Cuca and Jimmy Smits as Kevin Rosario. Ariana Greenblatt is also in the movie as Young Nina, as well as Lin-Manuel as the Piragua Guy and Christopher Jackson.
In The Heights will be out in theaters and on HBO Max (for 31 days) on June 18th!
