The poster for Brotherhood of the Wolf and Silent Hill director Christophe Gans' next film, Beauty and the Beast, is now online thanks to Allocine (via The Playlist). Starring Lťa Seydoux and Vincent Cassel, the film is described as follows:

1720. After the wreck of his ships, a financially-ruined merchant exiles himself in the countryside with his six children. Among them is Beauty, his youngest daughter, a joyful girl full of grace. One day, during an arduous journey, the merchant stumbles across the magical domain of the Beast, who sentences him to death for stealing a rose.

Feeling responsible for the terrible fate which has befallen her family, Beauty decides to sacrifice herself and take her fatherís place. At the Beastís castle, it is not death that awaits Beauty, but a strange life in which fantastical moments mingle with gaiety and melancholy. Every night, at dinner, Beauty and the Beast sit down together.

They learn about each other, taming one another like two strangers who are total opposites. When she has to repulse his amorous advances, Beauty tries to pierce the mysteries of the Beast and his domain. And when night falls, the Beastís past is revealed to her bit by bit in her dreams. It is a tragic story, which tells her that this solitary and fearsome being was once a majestic prince. Armed with her courage, ignoring every danger, and opening her heart, Beauty manages to release the Beast from his curse. And in doing so, she discovers true love.


Beauty and the Beast hits French theaters on February 12, 2014. A U.S. release date has not yet been set.
