CBS Films Gets Flinn’s Beastly

CBS Films has optioned Alex Flinn’s supernatural high school novel “Beastly” reports the trades.

The book tells the story of a modern-day teacher who turns into a beast, complete with fangs and claws, after a student in his class puts him under a spell.

No writers have been attached to the project, which would have to wait until the end of the writers strike to move forward. A Winter 2009 release is being targeted.
