The Dear Evan Hansen Movie

Another topic of the interview talked about the now in pre-production movie adaptation of Dear Evan Hansen. The movie rights for the multi-Tony Award Winning Musical were bought by Universal Studios in 2018. Platt is set to star in the movie, reprising the role that made him a star. He shared his thoughts on the film's production:

"...If COVID allows it, it's on the docket for everyone and something that I think everyone is really looking to make. We think this is obviously a story that would be really effective to tell on film. But it's a matter of can we make it happen in time for me to be conceivably young [enough for the role]. If the [COVID] guidelines prove that it's possible over the next few months, I think it's definitely a possibility."
