Deadline reports that Josh Gad, who currently stars in Disney's live action 'Beauty and the Beast', will take on the role of famed writer Truman Capote in writer /directors Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman's PARTY OF THE CENTURY. Jack O'Connell and Chloe Grace Moretz will also star. The New York romance will center on Capote's infamous Black and White Ball. Filming is scheduled to begin in New York City later this year.
