See Josh Gad's Bromantic 'Beauty and the Beast' Wrap Photo

14 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Never mind Belle and the Beast, we're ready for "Beauty and the Beast" to show the magical bromance of Gaston and Lefou! Disney's live-action remake -- starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Emma Thompson, Kevin Kline, Ian McKellen, Ewan McGregor, and Stanley Tucci -- is wrapping up filming and two of the stars shared a sweet nostalgic photo on set.

Josh Gad plays Lefou, opposite Luke Evans as the cocky Gaston. Luke's Gaston may not find love with Emma's Belle, but it sounds like the actors are leaving with a strong bond. Check out this photo from Josh, which was also shared with a note from Luke:

That's a wrap! Will miss the cast of #beautyandthebeast especially my brilliant Gaston #LukeEvans

Josh Gad has treated fans to a on-set glimpse of the upcoming live action Beauty and the Beast movie.

The actor, who plays LeFou in the Disney love story, marked the end of his time on set by posting a photo with co-star Luke Evans, who stars as the egotistical Gaston.

A photo posted by Josh Gad (@joshgad) on Jul 29, 2015 at 2:16am Pdt

"That's a wrap," Gad captioned the photo. "Will miss the cast of #beautyandthebeast especially my brilliant Gaston #LukeEvans."

The duo are sat on some snowy gothic steps in the photo, which could be part of Beast's castle.

The Frozen star previously shared some pictures of the cast, including one of Emma Watson (Belle), Evans, Kevin Kline (Maurice) and Dan Stevens (Beast).

Sir Ian McKellen will also appear in the remake as Beast's butler Cogsworth, »

Relativity Files Bankruptcy, 'Crow' Remake Still Shooting This Fall

30 July 2015 3:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After trying to stay afloat for several weeks, Relativity Media officially filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier today. The company's film and TV divisions will be sold off at an auction, according to Variety, but the separate units Relativity Sports, Relativity EuropaCorp Distribution and Relativity Education will not be a part of the proceedings.

She is currently the only cast member on board, after Jack Huston dropped out of playing Eric Draven last month. Corin Hardy is attached to direct from a script by Jesse Wigutow and Alex Tse, »

Relativity Tries Selling 'Jane Got a Gun' and More During Bankruptcy Scare

29 July 2015 3:57 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Jane Got a Gun hasn't had the best of luck. The Western had its director not show up on the first day of the shoot, actors drop out and multiple different release dates, and it looks as though the troubles facing the Natalie Portman-led and produced feature aren't over yet. Relativity Media, a company without a full-out hit since 2011, is on the edge of bankruptcy, and a little over a month before the movie's September 4 release date, the company is contacting potential buyers regarding not only Jane Got a Gun, but two other high-profile features as well -- the Sundance comedy The Bronze and the Nicholas Hoult/Felicity Jones-starring action-thriller Collide. Screenings for all three films are being held at the moment for potential buyers, but they have bigger sights in mind for Jane in particular. At the moment, lawyer David Boies is trying to court Harvey Weinstein »

Robert Zemeckis’s The Walk and Don Cheadle's Miles Ahead to open and close 53rd New York Film Festival. Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

Three world premières about three men - Steve Jobs, Miles Davis and Philippe Petit - anchor the 53rd New York Film Festival.

Announced yesterday, Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle's biopic, written by Aaron Sorkin, will be the Centerpiece. Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterston and Michael Stuhlbarg comprise the all-star cast.

The Walk in 3D, based on Philippe Petit's To Reach The Clouds, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Petit with Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon and Ben Schwartz, will open the festival. In 2012, Ang Lee’s majestic Life Of Pi was the first 3D movie screened as an Opening Night Gala.

Don Cheadle’s directorial debut “Miles Ahead” will close the New York Film Festival

27 July 2015 11:29 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Last week, the 2015 New York Film Festival gave us potentially another piece of the awards season puzzle when they announced their Closing Night selection for the fest. In a bit of a surprise, it’s Don Cheadle’s directorial debut Miles Ahead, a biopic about musician Miles Davis. Cheadle co-wrote the screenplay and stars as Davis as well, making this not just a passion project of his, but the sort of film that Academy members can sometimes really gravitate to. The fact that Nyff put it in the super prestigious Closing Night spot only makes it more of a movie we really need to pay attention to… Getting to be the closer at Nyff is a big deal for a flick. Unless this year is an anomaly, it more or less launches you straight into the heart of the Oscar race. Over the past 15 years, almost nothing in this slot »

Read More: Ezra Miller and Michael Angarano on the Dark Side of Human Nature in 'The Stanford Prison Experiment'  At 18 years old, Tye Sheridan has a career that would make even the most accomplished actor jealous. In the four years since making his acting debut opposite Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain in Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life," Sheridan has continued to work with some of the biggest and most acclaimed names in the business, including Jeff Nichols and Matthew McConaughey on "Mud," David Gordon Green and Nicolas Cage on "Joe," Rodrigo Garcia and Ewan McGregor on "Last Days in the Desert" and more.

Don Cheadle’s Miles Ahead to close New York Film Festival

23 July 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The organisers of this year’s New York Film Festival have this week announced that Miles Ahead will be the closing film of the festival, now in its 53rd year.

Miles Ahead is the biopic of legendary musician Miles Davis and marks the directorial debut of actor Don Cheadle (Boogie Nights), who also co-wrote the film and stars as the titular music genius. Emayatzy Corinealdi and Ewan McGregor co-star.

“I admire Don’s film because of all the intelligent decisions he’s made about how to deal with Miles, but I was moved—deeply moved—by Miles Ahead for other reasons,” said New York Film Festival director Kent Jones in a statement. (via The Hollywood Reporter)

“[Davis] changed the game time after time, and New York is really where it all took off for him. Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center feels very ‘right place, right time.’ Very exciting,” Cheadle himself said about the film’s premiere. »

Don Cheadle's 'Miles Ahead' to Close the 2015 New York Film Festival

22 July 2015 12:02 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

While putting my early Oscar predictions together I included Don Cheadle's directorial debut Miles Ahead, in which he not only directs but stars in the life story of Miles Davis, on my Best Actor (Cheadle) and Best Supporting Actress (Emayatzy Corinealdi) charts, but not on the Best Picture charts because the film is still without a domestic distributor and therefore without a release date and I didn't want to get too far ahead of myself. Well, the film is now set to premiere at the 53rd New York Film Festival as the closing night feature, which may be just the thing it needs to get a little buzz going. The announcement also comes with the following information regarding the story the film set out to tell: Miles Davis was one of the greatest artists of the 20th century.

Don Cheadle’s ‘Miles Ahead’ to Close New York Film Festival

22 July 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Don Cheadle’s “Miles Ahead” will be the closing night film for the 53rd New York Film Festival on Oct. 11.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center already set Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s “The Walk” as its opening night film on Sept. 25.

Miles Ahead” is Cheadle’s directorial debut. The screening will mark the film’s world premiere.

The title of the film is taken from the 1957 album that iconic trumpet player Miles Davis released in his first collaboration with arranger Gil Evans following the “Birth of the Cool” sessions.

Cheadle raised $344,683 last year through a crowdfunding campaign. The pic was called “Kill the Trumpet Player” when it was being sold to international territories at the American Film Market in 2013.

The film is set in New York in 1979 when Davis was ending a five-year “silent period” and teaming with a Rolling Stone reporter — played by Ewan McGregor — to start a career revival. »
