Hoo-boy. Here we go... We've come a long way from Jean Cocteau's La belle et la bÃªte. In the wake of New Moon's success, CBS Films has responded with a teaser trailer for their "Twilight"-esque spin on "Beauty and the Beast": Beastly. You can watch the 20-second spot below.
Based on the novel by Alex Finn, this take finds Alex Pettyfer getting hit with a whammy of a curse (put upon him by Mary-Kate Olsen) that turns him into a creature. Ah, but Vanessa Hudgens sees the man lurking inside the heart of this thing and falls for him. Daniel Barnz adapted the material for the big screen.
On FX duties is Tony Gardner whose credits include Darkman and Seed of Chucky.
Beastly opens on July 30, 2010.
