Squeezing more money out of established properties is a tale as old as time, and one that Disney is eager to add another chapter to following the healthy grosses that greeted last weekend's revisionist take on the Sleeping Beauty story, Maleficent. To that end, the studio is pursuing a live-action version of Beauty of the Beast, and they've reportedly just hired Twilight vet Bill Condon to direct it.

Condon To Helm Disney's Live-Action "Beauty" – Disney continues its plans to produce live-action re-imaginings of all its animated back catalogue with Bill Condon ("The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn," "Dreamgirls") signing on to direct their live-action re-interpretation of "Beauty and the Beast" for the studio. The film follows the likes of "Alice in Wonderland," "Oz: The Great and Powerful" and "Maleficent" which have all proven to be big box-office successes. 6 years 21 weeks ago via brucelee
