Watch Beastly Movie
Beastly is a 2011 romantic fantasy drama film loosely based on Alex Flinn’s 2007 novel of the same name. It is a retelling of the fairytale Beauty and the Beast and is set in modern-day New York City. The film was written and directed by Daniel Barnz and stars Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer.
Beastly was expected to be distributed to theaters by CBS Films and Alliance Films on July 30, 2010. However, the film’s release was delayed until March 18, 2011, in order to avoid a clash with the release of Charlie St. Cloud, but in January 2011, the release was moved forward to March 4, 2011.
The film is based on Alex Flinn’s 2007 supernatural romance novel Beastly, and has been in production since CBS Films bought the rights in December 2007. In February 2009, it was announced by Amy Baer, President and CEO of CBS Films, that Daniel Barnz would direct the film and write the screenplay. Susan Cartsonis produced the film through Storefront Films and Roz Weisberg co-produced it. Initially, the executives wanted a late 2008 theatrical release; however, the WGA strike prevented that possibility.
