You've got to hand it to Vanessa Hudgens' people. They're working hard to brand this gal and keep her busy. The High School Musical starlet was once vying for a role in a "Twilight" film. Later, she signed up for Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch!.
Entertainment Tonight reports Hudgens is joining the cast of CBS Films' Beastly. Also in talks to co-star is 19-year-old British actor Alex Pettyfer (Tormented).
Based on the young adult novel by Alex Flinn, writer-director Daniel Barnz's adaptation of Beastly is a modern-day spin on "Beauty and the Beast" in which a witch turns a young man into a monster. Hey, we might see some cool FX come out of this. We'll see...
Shooting begins this summer.
