Olsen, Pettyfer to get 'Beastly'
Vanessa Hudgens stars in 'Beauty' retelling
Daniel Barnz is directing from his own script, in which Olsen's character places a curse on a handsome egocentric young man, to be portrayed by Pettyfer, who's physically transformed into everything he despises.
Story's based on Alex Flinn's fantasy novel, a retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" set in modern-day New York. CBS acquired feature rights to "Beastly" in late 2007 as one of its first projects.
Shooting starts June 13 in Montreal. Roz Weisberg is co-producing.
Olsen last appeared in "The Wackness" opposite Ben Kingsley. Pettyfer starred in "Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker."
