What better way to complement the previously announced Mary-Kate Olsen, Vanessa Hudgens, and Alex Pettyfer than with a little N.P.H. action?
THR reports tonight that Neil Patrick Harris has signed on to play a blind tutor who helps and bonds with a teen (Alex Pettyfer) who is shellshocked from being turned into a hideous young man in CBS Films’ Beastly.
Based on the “young adult” novel by Alex Flinn, Beastly is a modern day telling of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale, in which a witch (Olsen) turns a handsome yet smarmy young man into a self-loathing monster. As we reported previously, said monster will be played by Alex Pettyfer with Vanessa Hudgens as the beautiful one who can break the spell.
Stay tuned for more as it comes. Look for the film July 30, 2010.
