Christophe Gans To Direct Adaptation Of BEAUTY & THE BEAST With Vincent Cassel & Lea Seydoux

The Silent Hill director will adapt one of the earliest versions of the classic fairy tale, with the mighty Vincent Cassel and Midnight In Paris' Lea Seydoux in the title roles..

Gans has also written the screenplay and will direct the French language version with a budget of around €33 million ($43.2 million). Silent Hill is generally considered to be among the best video game adaptations out there (not exactly difficult I know), and his genre mixing Brotherhood Of The Wolf, also with Cassel, is something of a flawed masterpiece imo.



Of course there have been numerous versions of this story already, from Disney's much loved animated feature to the recent travesty Beastly. Guillermo Del Toro is also said to be interested in directing his own take with Harry Potter's Emma Watson. There is another French version of the story out there too, the bizarre 1975 flick La bête (The Beast). There have been a few comic book adaptations too, including a limited series from Marvel with X-Men's Beast and Dazzler!

Gallic studio Pathe is taking French and U.K. distribution rights and Fox handles Pathe's theatrical, home entertainment and TV distribution in the U.K. Production is expected to begin Oct. 8.
