Beastly: the movie/film

You may have in your library the book Beastly by Alex Flinn, which places the story of Beauty and the Beast in modern day New York (with a young man who is 'obscenely good looking' and has, unfortunately, manners also requiring that adjective.


There's a film of this book coming out in September 2010, starring Alex Pettyfer (Stormbreaker) and Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical).
Are they destined to become the next Bella and Edward? asks this online article (slightly breathlessly).  It also has a film clip. (Article is source of the above pic).  More fodder for Trailer Time...

Cheers

(Whose favourite version of Beauty and the Beast remains Beauty by Robin McKinley).

I love the Sheri Tepper version. Probably because it includes time travel... ;-)
