His path initially led him in the boxing ring, then to the theater and finally to the cinema. At the end of the 1950s his career begins on the screen.

The official trailer for Cyrano is here.

The upcoming musical period piece, from Pride & Prejudice director Joe Wright, is a new take on the classic French play, starring Peter Dinklage as the titular character, Cyrano de Bergerac.

"Convinced that his appearance renders him unworthy of the love of a devoted friend, the luminous Roxanne (Haley Bennett), Cyrano has yet to declare his feelings for her — and Roxanne has fallen in love, at first sight, with Christian (Kelvin Harrison, Jr.)," the film's description reads.

Tony Award-winning producer Elizabeth Ireland McCann dies

  Tony Award-winning producer Elizabeth Ireland McCann dies NEW YORK (AP) — Tony Award-winning producer Elizabeth Ireland McCann, who helped mount an astounding array of hits on Broadway and in London, including “The Elephant Man,” “Morning’s at Seven,” “Amadeus,” “The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby” and “Copenhagen,” has died. She was 90. McCann died of cancer Thursday at Calvary Hospital in the Bronx, according to her longtime associate and friend, Kristen Luciani. McCann was a managing producer of the Tony Awards telecast for a number of years and won nine Tonys during her career, including for the revivals of “Hair” in 2009 and “A View From the Bridge” in 1998.

"My dearest friend, I'd be very angry with you if you died," Roxanne tells him.

Later, Cyrano admits his love for Roxanne to another friend but laments that "the world will never accept someone like me and a tall beautiful woman."

Roxanne, meanwhile, has her own dilemma: her mother says she must marry for money.

"Love? Does that mean nothing to you?" Roxanne asks her mother, who replies, "Children need love, adults need money."

When she falls for Christian — without actually speaking to him — Christian enlists the help of Cyrano to teach him "to speak romantically."

"Late to the Grace Kelly Tik Tok trend but WAY early for our Christmas movie musical," Reynolds captioned the post, hinting at the two stars' joint project.

"I am a poet, my words, upon your lips — I will make you romantic," Cryano tells him. "Will you make me handsome?"

The love triangle grows more complicated when Roxanne sees that Christian cannot live up to his poetic letters in person, and when Christian discovers Cryano's love for her.

"We must let her decide our fate, she must have the choice," Christian says as the clip comes to a close.

"I was one of those kids who felt like they were odd and other and unworthy of love, so I always connected to the story," he told the outlet. "It's about the human need for connection, and how we often fail to connect with other people."

"Perhaps this film can help to express what I believe to be true, which is that we are more similar than we are different, despite outward appearances," he added.

Cyrano premieres in theaters this December.
