See 3 New Images from Director Gina Prince-Bythewood's BEYOND THE LIGHTS, Starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Minnie Driver and Nate Parker

I have to be honest, when I first saw the above photo from writer/director Gina Prince-Bythewood's (The Secret Life of Bees, Love & Basketball) new movie musical, BEYOND THE LIGHTS, I thought it was taken from a a really good Funny or Die meme. Mostly because Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle) is sporting bright purple hair and a gold bra, and Minnie Driver seems so completely out of place in it.  

But, after further investigation, I realized this was an actual movie (and I do like the idea of seeing these actors out of their usual element). Hoping to duplicate some of the success of recent movie musicals, Jersey Boys excluded, Prince-Bythewood has assembled a fine cast, which also includes Nate Parker and Danny Glover, to tell the story of a young starlet (Mbatha-Raw) struggling to deal with the pressures of superstardom.

I'll update you as I get more information on the film, but below are a few more images to check out:

BEYOND THE LIGHTS hits theaters November 14.
