What's old is often new again and that's certainly the case for CBS Film's new romantic drama "Beastly."

A modern spin on the classic "Beauty and the Beast" tale, "Beastly" stars a very grown up Alex Pettyfer (Alex Rider: Stormbreaker) as teen Kyle Kingson, a cocky rich boy who doesn't know when to but the breaks on his ego.  His life is changed forever though after his antics embarrass his school's resident goth queen Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen).  After she puts a curse on him, his body transforms into everything he despises.  Cast from his home, it's only the accepting love of Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens) who can return him to his previous self.

Currently in production, "Beastly" is already scheduled for release on July 30, 2010.
