Disney Planning A Live Action Remake Of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
As Oz: The Great and Powerful proves itself to be a hit at the box office, Disney are no moving ahead with a live action remake of yet another classic fairy tale. Joining Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella is Beauty and the Beast from Trance scribe, Joe Ahearne.
Deadline reports that Disney are moving ahead with The Beast, a live action retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast fairy tale. The studio has chosen Joe Ahearne to pen the script, with the most recent credit on his resume being the brilliant looking Trance from director Danny Boyle. The site adds that the movie will more than likely be 3D (hardly a surprise), while it will apparently be produced by Mandeville’s David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman with Disney's LouAnne Brickhouse steering the project. This remake joins Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella. The last we heard about that project was the news that Emma Watson is in talks to star. Stay tuned for further details!
