I know, I know: Halloween is way too early for Christmas marketing. But these charming Gap spots directed by Sofia Coppola don’t beat you over the head with their Christmas-iness.

Canceled Starz Series ‘Magic City’ Becoming A Movie; Bruce Willis, Bill Murray Join Cast

Oct 31 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

When a TV series is canceled, that’s usually the end. It’s only on rare occasions (Arrested Development, The Comeback, etc.) that it gets a second chance as a series and it’s even more rare that a canceled show gets turned into a movie (Firefly being the big, obvious example). Now, the Starz show Magic City is getting that elusive chance. Series creator Mitch Glazer has written and script and will direct a big screen version of the 1960s Miami based mob series. All ...
