New Projects: Chris Pratt gearing up for bootlegging drama ‘The Real McCoy’

16 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

You might’ve used the expression “The Real McCoy” and not actually known where it came from. Colloquially it refers to something being authentic, or the real deal. In fact, if someone were to name their movie after it, you might presume it was just a romantic comedy.

Well, now super-mega-star Chris Pratt is set to star in a movie about where that expression originated. The Real McCoy is a bootlegging drama about the life of Bill McCoy, a famous rum-runner during Prohibition who, as an American sea captain, shipped and sold illegal liquor across the coast until his capture in 1923. According to urban legend, McCoy touted that his liquor was never “cut”, or watered down, thus the expression “The Real McCoy”. But McCoy is also credited with having essentially created the six pack in order to better carry and ship bottles of rum and whiskey.

Josh Gad & Jeremy Garelick Set Up Musical at Universal

16 April 2015 9:40 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal Pictures has beat out Disney and Paramount Pictures for an untitled musical comedy that has Josh Gad attached to star and Jeremy Garelick set to direct. Deadline reports that the musical will also feature brand new songs from celebrated composers Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz. The project made the studio rounds last Thursday, the same day that Josh Gad's FX series The Comedians premiered, with every major studio making an offer on the project.

The deal for this untitled musical closed last night, and is said to be in the low seven figures, with "strong progress to production language" and talent fees that could bring the deal up to eight figures if Universal ends up making the project. The story centers on Josh Gad's character, who integrates himself into a family lead by a busy single mother, and becomes an important member of their "clan." Josh Gad »

Ian McKellen talks about his first Beauty and the Beast rehearsal

15 April 2015 9:35 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sir Ian McKellen has described his first day of rehearsals for Beauty and the Beast on Twitter.

The actor shared an account of his arrival at Shepperton Studios, where he met with director Bill Condon, as well as the movie's cast and crew.

McKellen said that the first get-together was a "nerve-wracking occasion" and admitted that he would "have to work hard to equal what has already been achieved".

Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, who play Belle and the Beast respectively, read their lines with McKellen and co-stars Hattie Morahan, Luke Evans and Kevin Kline.

"There were clusters of white roses on the tables and a mic for each actor so we could be heard above the music from the electronic keyboard and percussion and the glorious voices of a 30-strong choir," he said.

"They were impressive enough, until the studio lights dimmed and the chorus sprang up and danced »

'Beauty and the Beast': Ian McKellen Reports from Table Read

15 April 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, we got our first look at the cast of Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast remake. Josh Gad, who plays Le Fou, shared a selfie that included himself alongside co-stars Emma Watson (Belle), Luke Evans (Gaston), Dan Stevens (Beast) and Kevin Kline (Maurice). Missing from the photo was Ian McKellen, who stars as the Beast's butler turned alarm clock Cogsworth. To make up for that, he has reported back from the set with an in-depth account of the first table read.

Beauty and the Beast will begin shooting in London very soon under the direction of Bill Condon, best known for musicals Chicago and Dreamgirls. Also participating in the cast read were Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Plumette), though they were not pictured. The only primary character from the animated version that hasn't been cast yet is Lumiere, voiced by Jerry Orbach in the 1991 movie.

Pre-production on Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast has begun and the Beast himself, Dan Stevens has given us our first look at the cast.

The actor posted a partial cast selfie to Instagram earlier today (on what also happens to be star Emma Watson’s 25th birthday) and the movie already looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun!

Stevens has rounded up co-stars Josh Gad (Le Fou), Luke Evans (Gaston), Kevin Kline (Maurice), and Emma Watson (Belle) for their group shot.

The only cast members missing are Emma Thompson who stars as Mrs. Potts, Gugu Mbatha-Raw who is playing Plumette, and Audra McDonald as the wardrobe Madame de la Grande Bouche.  Rumours have been swirling that Oscar winner Jean Dujardin has been eyed for the role of Lumiere and we have to admit, that would pretty much be perfect casting.  It was just confirmed »

Casting is in full swing for Disney’s upcoming Beauty and the Beast adaptation, with Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle – no relation) today becoming the latest addition to the all-star cast that’s led by Emma Watson, Dan Stevens and Luke Evans. The actress, who scored Oscar buzz for her role in last year’s Beyond the Lights, will take on the supporting part of Plumette the feather duster.

Mbatha-Raw joins a cast that already boasts Watson as Belle, Stevens as the Beast, Evans as Gaston, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth the clock, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts the teapot, Josh Gad as LeFou, Kevin Kline as Maurice and Audra MacDonald as Garderobe. Interestingly, her character has undergone a name change in this take – previous adaptations have featured flirty feather dusters with the names Babette and Fifi.
