If scoring “Hamilton” tickets has been on your bucket list, then you might find it easier to cross this one off before too long, as it looks like the popular Broadway musical will hit movie theaters in 2020.

Hollywood studios are reportedly bidding on big-screen rights of Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s musical to show in theaters around the country.

But unlike other successful broadway musicals — like “Mama Mia!” and “Hairspray” — that have been adapted for film, this production wouldn’t include an adaptation. Instead, moviegoers would have a chance to view an original 2016 recording of the show, in which Miranda played Alexander Hamilton.

The cast also includes Jonathan Groff as King George III, Leslie Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr, Christopher Jackson as George Washington, Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton, Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson and Reneé Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler. The movie would be released in 2020.
