Mary-Kate Olsen Turns Beastly

ON

CBS Films has cast Mary-Kate Olsen opposite Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer in the teen romance film Beastly.

Daniel Barnz is directing from his own script, in which Olsen’s character places a curse on a handsome egocentric young man (Pettyfer), who’s physically transformed into everything he despises.

The story is based on Alex Flinn’s fantasy novel, a retelling of “Beauty and the Beast” set in modern-day New York.

Shooting starts June 13 in Montreal.
