James Corden wanted to sing in One Chance

Oct 18 2013, 4:10am CDT | by Bang Movies

James Corden really wanted to sing in the new Paul Potts biopic 'One Chance'.

The actor will be seen playing the 'Britain's Got Talent' winner on the big screen in a movie documenting his rise to stardom, but he has revealed he was forced to lip-synch during musical scenes because his vocal ability wasn't strong enough.

Speaking at the premiere of 'One Chance' in Leicester Square, London, last night (17.10.13), he told BANG Showbiz: ''I wanted to sing, but I had a meeting with our producer and he said someone else should do that. Apparently there's a big leap between singing and singing opera. It became very obvious very quickly that I wasn't able to sing quite as well as they needed.''

The biopic - which was directed by 'The Devil Wears Prada' helmer David Frankel - co-stars Julie Walters and Colm Meany as Potts' parents, Alexandra Roach as his wife Julie-Ann Cooper, and it's believed d the film will also feature cameos from 'Britain's Got Talent' judges Simon Cowell, who is one of the film's producers, and Amanda Holden.

The 35-year-old comedian admits he's always been a fan of Walters, but since working with her on the movie he's developed even more admiration for her because of her laid-back personality and commitment.

He explained: ''I'm such a huge fan. I always have been. I remember me and my sister used to watch 'As seen on TV with Victoria Wood' all the time, it's brilliant. The greatest thing about her is she doesn't let you down. You just go away loving her even more than you did. She takes the work really seriously and doesn't take herself seriously at all. That's the best type of person.''

Following yesterday's laughable reveal of Johnny Depp as The Wolf in Disney's adaptation of the Broadway musical Into the Woods, a new featurette has popped up that finally shows the melody side of the film that wasn't present in the first teaser trailer. The featurette lays out the story a little clearer as an ensemble of characters are all wishing for something, and Meryl Streep's elderly witch tells them to go into the wo ...

Oct 23 2014 1:19am CDT | Source: Total Film

A new batch of images have arrived online from Disney’s Into The Woods, giving us a good look at the A-list cast in all its fairytale glory. First of all, there’s Anna Kendrick looking resplendent as Cinderella, while Chris Pine cuts a dash as a horse-riding Prince Charming. Then there’s Johnny Depp’s Big Bad Wolf, who appears to be sporting a very sober outfit, as opposed to any sort of elaborate costume or CGI trickery. Not that Depp isn’t convinced he will be ...

New INTO THE WOODS Images Feature Johnny Depp’s Big Bad Wolf, Anna Kendrick’s Cinderella, and More

Oct 22 2014 5:47pm CDT | Source: Collider

Earlier this morning, we got our first look at Johnny Depp’s Big Bad Wolf from director Rob Marshall’s (Chicago) upcoming musical adaptation Into the Woods.  It’s an interesting look to say the least, and while I figured the reason Depp was left out of the trailer was because his character would be CG-aided, it turns out he’s actually just wearing what looks like a relatively cheap Halloween costume.  Indeed, Depp tells EW Marshall let him put his own spin on the c ...
