BERLIN — Christophe Gans is heading back behind the camera to direct a big-screen adaptation of Beauty and the Beast from France’s Eskwad and Pathe.
The project, scheduled to begin shooting in October, will be produced by Richard Grandpierre.
Gans, who last directed Silent Hill in 2006 and whose resume also boasts Brotherhood of the Wolf, said he aims to “unleash” his imagination.
“Although I will keep to a form of storytelling of this timeless fairy tale that is in keeping with the same pace and characters as the original, I will surprise the audience by creating a completely new visual universe never experienced before and produce images of an unparalleled quality,” Gans declared in a statement.
“Every single one of my movies has presented me with a challenge, but this one is, by far, the most exciting and rewarding.”
