Ewan McGregor is in final negotiations to join the cast of Disney's live-action adaptation of the animated classic Beauty and the Beast. THR reports that McGregor will play Lumiere, the vivacious and charming maître d' who is transformed into a candelabra when the prince's castle is cursed. McGregor is another fine addition to the already excellent cast of Emma Watson as Belle, Kevin Kline as Belle’s father, Maurice, Dan Stevens as Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Le Fou, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts. Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, Gods and Monsters) is directing from a script written by Evan Spiliotopoulos and rewritten by Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower). [caption id="attachment_447527" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Disney[/caption] Lumiere performs the show-stopping number "Be Our Guest", and with Alan Menkin and Tim Rice composing new songs for the film, McGregor's talents should be put to good use. »

It's been 15 years since The Perks of Being a Wallflower was first published, but the fact that it's still relevant is a testament to how moving, heartwarming, and ultimately life-changing it can be. The film adaptation hit theaters just a few years ago, and while it did the book wonderful justice, there's just something about the words that's impossible to capture on screen. We've made pinnable graphics of 10 exquisite, emotional quotes from the book, so read on to remember just how much they tugged at your heartstrings. »
After landing the role of Hermione in the "Harry Potter" films back in 2001, Emma Watson has spent more than half her life in the Hollywood spotlight and she doesn't appear to be slowing down any time soon. The bright and beautiful Brit was just 10 years old when she got the big break, and this week she celebrated her 25th birthday on April 15th. Emma has not only impressed audiences with roles in films like the "The Bling Ring" and "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," she's also grown up to be an academic, activist, and terrific role model. Cheers to this inspiring young actress! Let's take a look back at her life so far in pictures for this week's #Tbt.

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!
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 »

Disney's live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast is quickly putting its cast together, with production slated to begin next month at Shepperton Studios in London. Earlier today, star Josh Gad, (Le Fou) shared a photo on his Instagram page, where he is pictured alongside co-stars Emma Watson (Belle), Luke Evans (Gaston), Dan Stevens (Beast) and Kevin Kline (Maurice). While it isn't exactly know where this photo was taken, Josh Gad added the caption, "Can't wait for you to be our guest," which is obviously a nod to the famous "Be Our Guest" song from the original 1991 animated version of Beauty and the Beast.
Other cast members who aren't pictured include Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts), Ian McKellen (Cogsworth) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Plumette). It isn't known how many roles have yet to be filled, but one of the primary characters from the animated version that hasn't been cast is Lumiere, »
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.

Just a few days after actor Ian McKellen joined Disney's live action Beauty and the Beast, the remake has added yet another cast member in Gugu Mbatha-Raw. The actress will portray Plumette, who was a feather duster in Disney's original animated classic Beauty and the Beast. The original 1991 movie took in over $375 million worldwide during its theatrical run, and was one of the few animated movies to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Picture.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw joins a cast that also includes Emma Watson (Belle), Luke Evans (Gaston), Dan Stevens (Beast), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts), Josh Gad (Le Fou) and Kevin Kline (Maurice). Production is scheduled to begin later this year, with Disney already setting a March 17, 2017 release date. It isn't known how many major roles are left to be cast in this live action adaptation.
However you feel about Disney plumbing its past fairy tales for big screen redos, there’s no denying that the studio’s casting choices for Bill Condon’s upcoming Beauty and the Beast have been spot-on. With Emma Watson in the role of Belle, and Dan Stevens and Luke Evans vying for her affections as the Beast and Gaston (respectively), the film looks increasingly like a must-see for acting aficionados. Now, the production has attracted another A-lister, with news that X-Men‘s Ian McKellen is taking on the role of Cogsworth.
In the original Disney flick, Cogsworth was the loyal butler to the Prince who was magically transformed into a clock by the same spell that turned his master into a savage beast.

The cast of the live-action version of "Beauty and the Beast" is shaping up nicely, with Ian McKellan reportedly joining the ensemble.
Variety reports that the veteran actor will be playing Cogsworth, a butler-turned-clock in the Beast's enchanted castle. He joins the previously-announced Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, and Emma Thompson.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw has also recently joined the cast, according to Variety. She'll play feather duster Plumette (also referred to as Babette and Fifi in other versions of the story), a former maid in the castle.
"Beauty and the Beast" is directed by Bill Condon, from a script by Evan Spiliotopoulos and rewritten by Stephen Chbosky ("The Perks of Being a Wallflower"). The flick is expected to begin production sometime this year, with a planned release date of March 17, 2017.

Disney has racked up another impressive cast-member for it's live-action adaptation of the animated classic, Beauty and the Beast. Variety reports that Ian McKellen has signed on as Cogsworth, the often severe, but good-natured majorodomo of Beast's castle. McKellen joins the excellent cast of Emma Watson as Belle, Kevin Kline as Belle's father, Maurice, Dan Stevens as Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Le Fou and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts. Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) is directing from a script written by Evan Spiliotopoulos and rewritten by Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower). Following the critical and box-office success of Cinderella, Disney has gone into reboot overhaul, putting the wheels into motion on live-action adaptations of Mulan, Dumbo, Winnie the Pooh and Pinocchio. However, of all the remakes on deck, Beauty and the Beast is currently the most exciting. For one, you just can't argue with that cast. »

Deadline is reporting that Phil Lord and Chris Miller are currently working on a treatment for Warner Bros. and DC's The Flash. The duo aren't attached to write or direct the comic book movie as The Lego Movie and Jump Street directors haven't decided on their next big screen project yet, but I doubt Warner Bros. would say no if they expressed interest in helming the film. The Perks Of Being A Wallflower's Ezra Miller is set to play the Scarlet Speedster, »

With Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) in the lead role, The Flash (not affiliated with the fantastic t.v. show) is racing towards a 2018 solo outing, after appearing in Justice League Part One the year before. We haven't heard much about the project since Miller's announcement, but now it's taken a huge leap forward with Deadline revealing The Lego Movie and 22 Jump Street's Phil Lord and Chris Miller have come on board to write the script treatment. There is no word on whether they'll direct, but it is a possibility. I find this a very interesting turn of events, that really clashes with earlier claims that the DC Comics movies are going to be 'edgier' than we are used to. If you're familiar with Lord and Miller, you know you can't call their work anything approaching edgy. They're perfect for the »

While The Flash continues to pull in audiences on television, Warner Bros has entirely separate plans for the superhero's incarnation on the big screen. For the studio's cinematic adaptation of the comic, Ezra Miller will be playing the title role - you may know him from The Perks Of Being A Wallflower or his terrifying turn in We Need To Talk About Kevin.
Meanwhile, Warner has installed some hot creative talent behind the camera. Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who've been responsible for enormous hits like The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street and its sequel and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, have signed up to write The Flash.
According to Deadline, who broke the story, it's not clear whether or not they'll direct. Certainly, the filmmaking »
Deadline is reporting some big news coming from Warner Bros. and its DC Universe, with The Lego Movie and 21/22 Jump Street writer/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are set to write WB’s The Flash movie, which will star The Perks of Being a Wallflower’s Ezra Miller as the superhero speedster. Whether the duo will direct the film remains to be seen, but right now they are working on the treatment.
Miller will not only feature in the standalone film, but is set to join Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) in the two-part Justice League film, and may yet cameo in Dawn of Justice next year, although that is yet to be confirmed.
The Flash is currently set for release in March 2018.

This past weekend, an exciting rumor surfaced in the form of a director possibility for Warner Bros.’ The Flash movie. The studio set the phenomenal Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being a Wallflower, We Need to Talk About Kevin) to star in the DC Comics adaptation last year, but with a March 23, 2018 release date looming, WB has still yet to secure a filmmaker for the project. Enter this weekend’s rumor: that WB is courting Phil Lord and Chris Miller—the directing duo behind 21/22 Jump Street, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and WB’s The Lego Movie—to take the helm of The Flash. The rumor clarified that Lord and Miller were also being pursued by Sony to take the helm of one of its Ghostbusters films, but the potential for Lord and Miller to take their talents to the superhero realm was mighty enticing. Well now we have some clarification and corroboration, »

Two of the hottest directors working today are reportedly being sought to direct The Flash. Latino-Review and a reporter for The Wrap both claim they've heard that Warner Bros. wants Phil Lord and Chris Miller behind the camera for the comic book movie starring Ezra Miller (The Perks Of Being A Wallflower), who was officially cast as the character back in October of last year. It's not clear if Lord and Miller are even interested in the gig, but I'm definitely not »

Shrouded in shadows, Doom-Head is featured in creepy fashion in the first still from Rob Zombie's 31. Also included in our latest round-up is a casting update for the second season of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series and an exclusive excerpt from Doug Lavers’ sci-fi thriller, Rekindling of Hope.
Rob Zombie's 31: Played by Richard Brake, Doom-Head dominates the first official still from Rob Zombie's 31 (see below). Since the news broke earlier this month that Malcolm McDowell had joined the cast of 31 as Father Murder, more actors have joined the film's ranks:
Pancho Moler (2005's Bad News Bears, American Horror Story: Freak Show) plays Sick-Head. Jeff Daniel Phillips (The Lords of Salem, Halloween 2) portrays Roscoe, "the ass-kicking carney mechanic of Venus Virgo’s traveling show." Jane Carr (Curb Your Enthusiasm, How I Met Your Mother) plays Sister Serpent, "a wicked cross of Satan meets Mother Goose. »
