Another new version of Beauty and the Beast... in French.

You like me as Beast, yes?

I can honestly say that I haven't fangirled for a new movie announcement in a while, so I will try and be as brief as I can. It seems they are making an adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, yet again, but a new completely French version. As far as my research goes adaptation wise, it has probably been since 1946 that a completely true to its origins version of BatB from its origin country has been made.

Sadly, this movie seems to be under wraps since I only found out about it through some IMDb research. But the cast truly looks phenomenal: Vincent Cassel (Black Swan) and Lea Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) play the leads along with Gerard Depardieu as Beauty's Father. It is directed by Christophe Gans (Silent Hill), which either could be awesome or full of fail - but I have my hopes.

With this, the possible Del Toro version and two new TV series, I am in Beauty and the Beast fangirl heaven!

What are your thoughts on these new versions? Excited, hating the idea or just bleh? Comment down below!
