The internet was abuzz with news of Disney’s re-boot of a tale as old as time, Beauty and The Beast, as a live-action film. Do not get this mixed up with Guilermo Del Torro’s version with Emma Watson, which has been stalled for a few years now. Disney is on the fast track trying to adapt their beloved animated films recently with Maleficent, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book. News broke that Bill Condon is in talks to bring Beauty and The Beast to the big screen once again. Many of our audiences will know him as the director of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2, he also directed Dream Girls and wrote the Academy Award winning movie script for Chicago.
Bill Condon definitely has the skill and resume to take this movie on. We agree with Cinema Blend, who say that, “Disney is here to brush away the CW’s Beauty And The Beast and stuff like Beastly, however, to reclaim the throne. The Beast is comin’ back, y’all.” It’s safe to say we will be hearing more about this adaptation soon!
