Mary-Kate Olsen Gets ‘Beastly’ For CBS Films



CBS Films (who ARE you?) has tapped Mary-Kate Olsen (The Wackness) and Alex Pettyfer (Tormented) to star alongside Vanessa Hudgens in teen horror romancer Beastly, with Susan Cartsonis producing via her Storefront Films shingle. Daniel Barnz is directing from his own script, in which Olsen’s character places a curse on a handsome egocentric young man, to be portrayed by Pettyfer, who’s physically transformed into everything he despises. The story’s based on Alex Flinn’s fantasy novel, a retelling of “Beauty and the Beast” set in modern-day New York. CBS acquired feature rights to “Beastly” in late 2007 as one of its first projects. Shooting starts June 13 in Montreal with the film hitting theaters July 30, 2010.
