Christophe Gans is soon going to drop his latest unique spin on a classic tale, Beauty and the Beast. Gans is well known for his previous horror films Silent Hill and Brotherhood of the Wolf. I for one cannot wait to see what Gans breathes to life. Set to star are Vincent Cassel (Black Swan, Irreversible) as The Beast and Lea Seydoux (Inglourious Basterds, Robin Hood, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol) as Beauty.
Gans stated that this will be a darker look at the classic story. "Although I will keep to a form of storytelling of this timeless fairy tale that is in keeping with the same pace and characters as the original, I will surprise the audience by creating a completely new visual universe never experienced before and produce images of an unparalleled quality. Every single one of my movies has presented me with a challenge, but this one is, by far, the most exciting and rewarding."
