    Derulo will play Ronald Dawson, an up-and-coming light heavyweight boxer who “knows how to throw a mean left hook and a raging party. Dawson’s never shy about putting his toned physique on display, which, in combination with his winning smile, means one or several ladies are never far off,” according to Fox.

  • 02:25 - The Nutcracker - Disney's Live Action Adaptation Casts Mackenzie Foy as the Lead
    Young Interstellar star Mackenzie Foy has been cast as lead character Clara in Disney's live-action The Nutcracker.

    Lasse Hallström is directing the film, which is based on The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by E.T.A. Hoffmann.

    Ashleigh Powell wrote the script for the project, which is produced by Mark Gordon and executive produced by Lindy Goldstein.

    The story, set at Christmas time, follows a young girl named Clara whose favorite toy, a Nutcracker, comes alive. After he defeats the Mouse King, he whisks Clara away to a magical kingdom inhabited by dolls. The story inspired the iconic ballet, which featured one of Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s most famous compositions.

    Sam Dickerman and Allison Erlikhman are overseeing the project for Disney, while Sara Smith is overseeing for The Mark Gordon Company.

    Misty Copeland has already been cast to play the lead ballerina role in the sole dance sequence in the film. The project is eyeing a fall start.

    Foy will be in nearly every scene of the film playing the young protagonist. Foy was previously seen playing Renesmee, the love child of Edward and Bella, in the Twilight franchise. She also starred in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar and voices a character in The Little Prince.
