Promo art already released for Gans' Beauty And The Beast Film starring Vincent Cassel

It wasn’t that long ago we got word that the man behind SILENT HILL and BROTHERHOOD OF THE WOLF Christophe Gans was planning to direct and write a new BEAUTY AND THE BEAST film. Production is set to begin in October of this year.

Seems a bit early to have more news about it, but we have some as early promo art has been released for the film. It also seems a bit too soon to have some, but I guess it happens when films are in pre-production. The lovely piece of work can be seen above.

The film has Vincent Cassel (he worked with Gans on BROTHERHOOD) and Léa Seydoux (seen in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – GHOST PROTOCOL) on board as the stars. The brief synopsis for this project was released: Through her great capacity to love, a kind and beautiful maid releases a handsome prince from the spell which has made him an ugly beast.

I am sure Gans will make an interesting film, his visual style seems very much suited to a story like this, and I am sure it will be dark and disturbing. All of his works have that vibe and they really set him aside from the rest.

Extra Tidbit: Gans' last film was actually SILENT HILL, a good 6 years ago!
