Beauty and the Beast


Bill Condon in talks to direct Disney’s live-action ‘Beauty and The Beast’

April 11, 2014

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!

    No. No. No. No. No. Disney can do whatever they want with their other 52 animated features, but Beauty and the Beast should be left alone. I would however get behind a feature length Rumbelle movie with Robert Carlyle and Emilie de Ravin.

    Yeah, I mean why mess with the picture that got nominated for Best Picture Oscar? I’d actually love to see a live action Aladdin. Imagine all the sweeping shots on the magic carpet they could get? Plus, it’d be a great chance for some representation in Hollywood.

    Emma Watson as Belle and Sam Claflin as Beast. That is all.
