[EFM ’12] ‘Silent Hill’ Director Tells Darker ‘Beauty in the Beast’

Christophe Gans (Silent Hill, Brotherhood Of The Wolf) is to make a new version of Beauty And The Beast, Screen Daily reports from Berlin.

The film will star the great Vincent Cassel (Black Swan, Out Day Will Come, Sheitan) and Lea Seydoux (Inglourious Basterds), and will be produced by Richard Grandpierre.

Details of plot and what approach the new film will take are skimpy but Gans said: “Although I will keep to a form of storytelling of this timeless fairy tale that is in keeping with the same pace and characters as the original, I will surprise the audience by creating a completely new visual universe.

Principal photography will start on October 8. Eskwad is partnering with Pathe on the project
