Rumor: Could Bill Condon Direct Disney’s Live-Action BEAUTY AND THE BEAST?

by     Posted 13 days ago

Though it’s taken a few years to come to fruition, Disney’s billion-dollar-grossing Alice in Wonderland kicked off a new trend for the studio in 2010.  It has slowly been working on live-action adaptations of some of the studio’s classic animated films, and we’ll see the next one this May in the form of Maleficent, which tells the Sleeping Beauty story from the villain’s point of view.  After that, we have Kenneth Branagh’s live-action Cinderella set for release in March 2015, Jon Favreau is directing a live-action take on The Jungle Book for release in October 2015, and there is also a redo of Beauty and the Beast in the works.

While Disney set a writer on Beauty and the Beast early last year, we haven’t heard much more about the project in the interim.  However, if a new report is to be believed, the studio may have found a director in Dreamgirls and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn helmer Bill Condon.  More after the jump.
