It premiered full of excitement, beautiful sets, glamorous floor-length gowns, and backstabbing midcentury intrigue, and after two seasons fizzled out until it was canceled, but Magic City, the period television drama on Starz that's a somewhat fictionalized (but not that inaccurate) account of life in the grand hotels of Miami Beach in the 1950s and 60s, is back. This time it's a movie according to Deadline Hollywood, starring Bruce Willis and Bill Murray along with the original cast.
The pitch: Miami 1962. Gangsters, hoteliers, spies and socialites win, lose and die beneath the palms. JFK and a mob boss share a mistress in a Collins Avenue penthouse. The CIA secretly arms Cuban freedom fighters and hires the mafia to kill Castro. The most powerful Miami Beach hotel owner battles them all to save his family and survive in the Magic City. No word yet on when it's coming to the big screen.
