Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda is reportedly in talks to appear in a BBC adaptation of Philip Pullman's 'His Dark Materials'.
Miranda is close to signing on as Lee Scoresby, an adventurer and balloonist in the series, according to EW.
The BBC commissioned the series in 2015 and it will be based on Pullman's 'Northern Lights', 'The Subtle Knife', and 'The Amber Spyglass'.
Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper is in talks to direct the eight-episode series. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child playwright Jack Thorne will write the script.
A rising star is in final talks to take on the main role of Lyra.
Dafne Keen, who starred in 'Logan', is in line to play the protagonist.
Fans of the series have been sharing their excitement at the casting rumours.
I am A MESS regarding the casting so far for the #HisDarkMaterials miniseries. I’m re-reading Golden Compass right now. These books are so special.— Sage Young (@sageyoungest) March 9, 2018

Oh. My. God. I absolutely loved these novels and I am so excited for this BBC adaptation! And casting Dafne Keen as Lyra is such a good choice, I loved her in 'Logan'. So excited! #hisdarkmaterials https://t.co/u7iyvWqqiE— Tooth Megawitch (@megabichi) March 9, 2018
