Canceled TV Series ‘Magic City’ to Be Revived as Film


Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s canceled Magic City casino mob series is set to be revived on the big screen with Bruce Willis and Bill Murray joining the cast.

The period TV show, which also starred Danny Huston and Olga Kurylenko, was scrapped last year after just two seasons on the Starz network, but now blockbuster filmmaker Brett Ratner has signed on to co-produce and help finance a movie adaptation.

The original series cast will return for the film, alongside new additions Willis and Murray.

The Magic City movie will be directed by series creator Mitch Glazer, who previously worked with Murray on his 2010 directorial debut, Passion Play, starring Mickey Rourke and Megan Fox.

Moonrise Kingdom co-stars Murray and Willis have recently completed work on director Barry Levinson’s new movie Rock the Kasbah.
