Many similarly themed shows came and went in the wake of Mad Men’s success, and one such series was Starz’s Magic City. The show took place in 1959 Miami and revolved around a club owner, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who is forced to make a deal with a mobster. It ran for two seasons on the network, but it is now getting new life in the form of a Magic City movie. Variety reports that creator Mitch Glazer will direct a feature film iteration of the show, with Morgan, Danny Huston, Olga Kurylenko, and Kelly Lynch poised to reprise their roles from the series. Moreover, Bruce Willis and Bill Murray are being added to the mix as new characters, though specifics aren’t provided at this time.
The Magic City movie will be set in 1962 and once again revolve around Morgan’s Miami club owner. Further details are unknown, but QED will shop the project to buyers at the American Film Market next week.
