Olsen, Pettyfer Have “Beastly” Romance

Mary-Kate Olsen and Alex Pettyfer will star in the “Beauty and the Beast”-esque teen romancer “Beastly” for CBS Films says Variety.

Based on Alex Flinn’s fantasy novel, Olsen’s character places a curse on a handsome egocentric young New Yorker (Pettyfer) who’s physically transformed into everything he despises.

Vanessa Hudgens also stars in the film that Daniel Barnz is directing from his own script.

Susan Cartsonis is producing and shooting kicks off June 13th in Montreal.
