hey guys, I don't know how many of you have read this interview-- it's great!
Playbill.com with Rent's director...
the most interesting thing to me:
"I thought about the possibility of making it into a film. But I had heard at the time, I think that it might have been Martin Scorsese, was involved, so obviously I'm not going to get in the way of that. And, then I heard later on that Spike Lee was involved. ... I always knew I wanted to be involved with it in some way if it was still available. I found out that it was going to NBC as a miniseries. I immediately acted upon that and said, "I don't want this thing to become homogenized in a TV version of Rent.""
Oh, and Daphne Ruben-Vega was pregnant, not too old looking, like I had thought previously.
