Beauty and the Beast Get Together in New Beastly Still

Finally a new still has surfaced from CBS Films’ Beastly in which the beast (Alex Pettyfer) gets his claws on his beauty (Vanessa Hudgens). And they’re at the zoo no less!

Beastly is an edgy teen romance about learning how to see past false surfaces to discover true inner beauty. Daniel Barnz is directing the project, which will hit theatres everywhere July 30, 2010. Susan Cartsonis is producing through her company, Storefront Pictures, and Roz Weisberg is co-producing. In addition to his role as director, Barnz wrote the screenplay, which is based on the Alex Flinn novel of the same name.

Kyle Kingson (Alex Pettyfer) has it all – looks, intelligence, wealth, and opportunity – and a wicked cruel streak. Prone to mocking and humiliating “aggressively unattractive” classmates, he zeroes in on Goth classmate Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen), inviting her to the school’s extravagant environmental bash. Kendra accepts, and, true to form, Kyle blows her off in a particularly savage fashion. She retaliates by casting a spell that physically transforms him into everything he despises. Enraged by his horrible and unrecognizable appearance, he confronts Kendra and learns that the only solution to the curse is to find someone that will love him as he is – a task he considers impossible.

Repulsed by his appearance, Kyle’s callous father banishes him to Brooklyn with a sympathetic housekeeper (LisaGay Hamilton) and blind tutor (Neil Patrick Harris). As Kyle ponders how to overcome the curse and get his old life back, he chances upon a drug addict in the act of killing a threatening dealer. Seizing the opportunity, Kyle promises the addict freedom and safety for his daughter, Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens), if she will consent to live in Kyle’s Brooklyn home. Thus begins Kyle’s journey to discover true love in this hyper-modern retelling of the classic “Beauty and the Beast” story.

        In the book he actually did turn into a bigfoot/wolfman type creature like the normal stories, but then they’d be supporting bestiality or some stupid crap like that, so they turned him into a gay version of Deucalion from Dean Koontz’s Frankenstein. Hoorah.

          LMAO! Plus god forbid one of these people should be depicted as truly ugly, right?
