Alex Flinn's *Beastly*...reminds me of...

The other day I was running around, recommending teen books for Christmas, when I spotted Beastly by Alex Flinn. I'm about halfway through this modernized Beauty and the Beast re-telling when I visit Harper Collins online just to see what's what, when I learn this:

Alex Flinn's Beastly is headed to theaters! CBS Films has tapped Mary-Kate Olsen and Alex Pettyfer to star alongside Vanessa Hudgens in the teen romance Beastly. The story is based on Alex Flinn's fantasy novel, a retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" set in modern-day New York. Shooting started June 13 in Montreal.

And I'm thinking, "Mary-Kate Olsen? Where has she been?" Then I wondered about how this film might look. Here's a preview from my head:

"Hi Beast. I have this smouldering look DOWN! Watch out!"

"*Hmm* Shall I eat you or make you love me?"


"Catherine!!!!"

"That's okay, there's another one of me"


Okay, so I'm assuming that when they say "Alex Pettyfer" they really mean "Ron Perlman" as the Beast.

See your with me when you think beast you think Ron Pearlman's beast, but if you go and look at the pictures of the beast for Beastly..well, HE ISN'T A BEAST! He just looks like some sort of tatooed freak..very disappointing, but I still want to see it.

I miss Ron Perlman too.

You do know there's a trailer for BEASTLY now, right? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-1WHt5Fk_E

Alex Pettyfer is pretty, but he canNOT do an American accent. He says "This is my stawwwry" at the beginning like he's got a mouthful of marbles. I fear I am not expecting great things of this movie!

So the smouldering M-K is the "witch" who turns the beast into a beast... and I still may cringe with Vanessa as the love interest. She's supposed to be way more average-looking, according to the book. But I LOVE what they're doing to make Alex beastly without fur! (I posted pics in my review of Beastly, if you haven't seen them yet.) Can't wait to hear what you think of the book!
