And it's totes going to be in
headache-inducing visually striking 3D!!
Now that the dream-makers over at Disney know the company will inevitably make BANK on any remake/spin-off of a beloved classic — Oz The Great and Powerful KILLED it at the box office on opening weekend — they are planning yet ANOTHER adaptation of a past, iconic project…
Beauty and the Beast!! The film, tentatively called Beast, will be written by critically acclaimed scribe Joe Ahearn, who wrote Danny Boyle's latest flick Trance.
But wait (we hear you ask) isn't Guillermo Del Toro already directing a live-action Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson?! YUP, at least as far as we know! AND there is a dark and twisty French version being made starring Black Swan's Vincent Cassel!
We're VERY curious as to how Disney will set their live-action version apart from all of the others, unless they just do a shot for shot remake of the original, which would be majorly pointless.
Well, at least the House of Mouse will have (and has had) PLENTY of opportunities to test the formula with Cinderella and Angelina Jolie's Sleeping Beauty spinoff Maleficent…
We just hope hope hope that Disney doesn't damage this already flawless gem!
