The imminent live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast looks wonderful, sure, but it’s sorely lacking the presence of Angela Lansbury, particularly in the musical department. Rest assured that Disney recognizes your disappointment and they, too, feel as though we could all desperately use a little Lansbury magic in our lives — thus, a solution has emerged: The artist formerly known as Jessica Fletcher will generously grace the Mary Poppins sequel with her presence.
As you can probably imagine, animated movies are dubbed into other languages for distribution in other countries.

But fear not -- it
Way to go, internet! You jumped the gun on this one!
In all fairness, we were among the many sites that reported Johnny Depp being cast in Wes Anderson's upcoming 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' but it turns out that was far from confirmed. Mr. Anderson himself has cleared it all up for us: his film will have a great cast, but it will not include Depp.
Peanut butter and jelly. Jack and Coke. Bill Murray and Wes Anderson. Some things are just meant to go together. Murray and Anderson have collaborated on six quirky films together (including the animated 'Fantastic Mr. Fox') and it would appear as though a seventh is in the offing. Wes Anderson won't be making 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' without his good luck charm, and apparently not without 'Murd
