20 March 2013 3:38 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rosario Dawson and Danny Boyle put their recent break-up behind them as they posed together on the red carpet at the Trance premiere in London last night (March 19).

Dawson, 33, looked glamorous in a red sequinned gown by British designer Jenny Packham as she placed an arm around director Boyle, whom she reportedly split with earlier this month.

The pair, who met on the set of the heist thriller, were joined by co-stars James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel and Tuppence Middleton.

Other guests included Inbetweeners star James Buckley and wife Clair Meek, currently expecting their second child together.

The film, co-written by Joe Ahearne and John Hodge, is released on March 27 in the UK and April 5 in the Us.

New Featurette for Danny Boyle’s Trance with James McAvoy

19 March 2013 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

We’ve got just over a week to wait for Danny Boyle’s Trance, and all that we’ve seen so far has our interest piqued for the psychological crime-thriller.

James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel, and Rosario Dawson take the lead here, making up an impressive leading trio. And after catching the first TV spot, MSN have debuted a new featurette, taking us behind the scenes of Boyle’s return behind the camera.

A fine art auctioneer mixed up with a gang joins forces with a hypnotherapist to recover a lost painting. As boundaries between desire, reality and hypnotic suggestion begin to blur the stakes rise faster than anyone could have anticipated.

Starring alongside McAvoy, Cassel, and Dawson will be Tuppence Middleton, Danny Sapani, Lee Nicholas Harris, and Wahab Sheikh.

Boyle is directing from a script co-written by Joe Ahearne (Apparitions) and John Hodge (Trainspotting), partly inspired by Ahearne’s 2001 TV movie of the same name. »

First TV Spot for Danny Boyle’s Trance with James McAvoy – ‘Heist’

18 March 2013 8:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Danny Boyle’s Trance is pretty much guaranteed to be awesome, and earns its place and then some amongst our must-see movies of the month.

The psychological crime-thriller stars James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel, and Rosario Dawson as the leading trio, and that’s definitely a cast we’re looking forward to seeing.

The latest red-band trailer debuted last month, giving us a brilliant new look at the film. And now Fox have released the first slightly more work-friendly TV spot ahead of its release in the Us in a few weeks’ time.

A fine art auctioneer mixed up with a gang joins forces with a hypnotherapist to recover a lost painting. As boundaries between desire, reality and hypnotic suggestion begin to blur the stakes rise faster than anyone could have anticipated.

Disney Planning Live-Action Re-Imagining Of Beauty And The Beast

12 March 2013 4:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Disney has spent the last few years re-imagining or remaking the best fairy tales. After all, if people love the story, why won’t they want to see it again? From Alice and Wonderland to the recent Oz The Great And Powerful, these films have proven that they can be quite successful (at least in terms of box office figures), so it looks like this trend is here to stay. The next classic that Disney is looking to re-imagine is Beauty And The Beast, or as the new film may be called, The Beast. 

Trance writer Joe Ahearne is currently in talks with Disney to reinvent the franchise and the plan is to make the new film live-action and likely 3D.

Keep in mind, with a name like The Beast and a writer like Ahearne, the film may end up looking a little different from the sweet, heart-warming picture above. »

Disney plans a live action Beauty and the Beast adaptation - Trance screenwriter hired

12 March 2013 4:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coming off the back of the success of Sam Raimi's Oz the Great and Powerful (read Scott Davis' review here), Deadline are reporting that Disney has hired Trance scribe Joe Ahearne to develop a live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast titled The Beast.

Beauty and the Beast was a classic 18th Century fairy tale and is most known for the Oscar winning animated Disney movie released in 1991. More recently, CW launched a live action TV series with the same name staring Kritsin Kreuk and Jay Ryan.

The Beast will be produced by David Hoberman (The Muppets...Again!), Todd Liberman (The Fighter) and LouAnne Brickhouse.

This is not the only live action Beauty and the Beast adaptation in the works, with Warner Bros working alongside Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim) as director and Emma Watson (the Harry Potter franchise) as the star. Could we be seeing a »

Disney Plans New Live-Action Take On Beauty And The Beast

12 March 2013 10:18 AM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Fresh on the heels of the large opening weekend for Sam Raimi’s fantasy flick Oz the Great and Powerful, Disney is now tackling a live-action re-imagining of Beauty and the Beast. The studio giant is ready to put a new spin on another classic story. Therefore, Trance screenwriter Joe Ahearne has been tapped to pen the script for the project to be titled The Beast. A classic fairy tale from 18th century France has been told time and again on screens both big and small, and recently, 2011s Beastly offered a modern take on the story, as well as the CW’s recently launched ‘Beauty and »

Disney Wants to Remake a Tale as Old as Time

12 March 2013 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

According to Deadline Hollywood, Disney is attempting to double-down on its classics. The studio is looking to create a new version of Beauty and the Beast with writer Joe Ahearne (Trance, director of several Doctor Who episodes). The goal is to make it live-action and in 3D ala Alice in Wonderland and Oz the Great and Powerful. Those names are notable not just because they represent the model for what Disney is doing here, but also because Disney is maybe the only studio who has figured out how to make fairy tales work on such a massive scale. Still, the question remains as to whether The Beast is a good idea because it steps on its own toes. Of course, maybe their re-release of the animated version was just a litmus test for going forward with this project, but while Disney’s previous successes told new stories in familiar universes, it »

Movie News: Disney Redoing 'Beauty and the Beast;' David Straithairn to Combat 'Godzilla;' Mel Brooks Documentary

12 March 2013 9:00 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Beauty and the Beast: Following the success of its live-action Alice in Wonderland and now its Oz prequel (and because two other productions beat the studio to Snow White), Disney has picked its next fantasy property to rework: Beauty and the Beast. The studio, which also has a live-action Cinderella in the works, has hired Joe Ahearne, one of the writers behind Danny Boyle's upcoming Trance, to script the movie, which is titled The Beast and will (obviously) be in 3D. Title-wise, it makes a nice counterpoint to the Guillermo del Toro-planned version called Beauty. Anyone else think Johnny Depp would make a great French candelabra? Anyone?

Disney will not be left out of the Beauty And The Beast reimagining game

12 March 2013 8:55 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The dramatic death of Jack The Giant Slayer (especially after the tepid performance of Snow White And The Huntsman and Mirror Mirror) would seem to have spelled an end to the trend of dark fairy-tale reimaginings—in the boring real world. In the magical make-believe world of movie studios, such setbacks are just the tragic backstory to be overcome by a plucky hero, preferably in 3-D, which is why Disney is forging ahead with a new live-action, 3-D, dark reimagining of Beauty And The Beast called The Beast, from Trance screenwriter Joe Ahearne.  If this sounds familiar, it’s because »

Disney: 'Beauty and the Beast' Remake + Emma Watson Not 'Cinderella'

12 March 2013 8:02 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Here's a strange web of interconnected news. Just at the end of last month we learned that Emma Watson was in talks for the title role in a live-action version of Disney's famous fairytale Cinderella. However, Variety reports that she is no longer taking the role. The move did seem surprising since Watson was said to be part of a new take on Beauty and the Beast with Guillermo del Toro producing. In a strange twist, there's news that Disney is working on their own live-action version of the familiar tale with they turned into the first animated Best Picture nominee in 1991. Sounds like they want to beat del Toro to the punch. Deadline has word that Disney has tapped writer Joe Ahearne, the British writer who worked on Danny Boyle's new thriller Trance, to write a film called The Beast. The title alone seems to throw the fairytale nature of the story aside, »

Disney Planning Live-Action ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Movie

12 March 2013 7:37 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The news that Disney intends to produce a live-action Beauty and the Beast retelling (probably in 3D) might come across as sacrilege for those who grew up loving the company’s traditionally-animated version, but shouldn’t be a surprise following the successful (as in cash cow) fairy tale revisionist blockbusters Alice in Wonderland and Oz the Great and Powerful.

Mouse House executives are calling the project The Beast and have recruited Joe Ahearne to write the script. Ahearne co-wrote the upcoming Danny Boyle-directed thriller Trance (loosely based on the screenwriter’s 2001 TV movie), in addition to previously writing for the TV series Ultraviolet and Apparitions and the forthcoming Da Vinci’s Demons. His resume suggests Ahearne was brought aboard to write a darker fairy tale re-imagining – something which pushes Disney’s family-friendly boundaries further ...

'Beauty and the Beast': Disney Plans Live-Action 3D Adaptation of Fairy Tale

12 March 2013 6:28 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Fairy tales are the hottest thing in Hollywood these days. Disney is dominating the box office with "Oz the Great and Powerful," and now the studio is throwing yet another one on the to-do pile. In addition to making moves on an "Oz" sequel, Disney is in the beginning stages of revamping "Beauty and the Beast" for an audience thirsty for a slightly twisted take on the classic story. According to Deadline, the studio is reportedly interested in screenwriter Joe Ahearne for "The Beast," as it's being called. In addition to penning the trippy script to Danny Boyle's upcoming sci-fi flick, "Trance," Ahearne has plenty of TV experience; he's written and directed a number of "Dr. Who" episodes, as well as the spooky BBC show "Apparitions." It's not confirmed, but industry folks are guessing the film will be in 3D like "Oz" and Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland, »

Disney Plans Reimagining Of ‘Beauty And The Beast'

12 March 2013 6:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, this occurrence was probably inevitable, but given the $150 million worldwide haul last weekend for "Oz The Great And Powerful," it likely made some decisions in the boardroom a lot easier. So, following "Alice In Wonderland" and 'Oz,' with the Angelina Jolie starring "Maleficent" on the way, and "Cinderella" looking to get in front of cameras this fall (though still searching for a princess), Disney is now tackling a live action (and probably 3D) reimagining of "Beauty And The Beast." Obviously. There are not many details at this point, except that it will be penned by "Trance" writer Joe Ahearne, and it will be titled "The Beast." So yeah, we're figuring some kind of origin story thing or whatever. Of course, the the 1991 animated movie is an Oscar-winning classic, beloved by fans worldwide, so in Disney's eyes, it probably only makes sense to tap into that market and turn »

Disney Planning Live-Action Remake of Beauty and the Beast, Similar to Oz The Great and Powerful

12 March 2013 4:03 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

After the success of "Oz The Great and Powerful," Disney decided to re-imagine another popular property, "Beauty and the Beast." The studio just hired Joe Ahearne (Trance) to write a script for a new live-action version of the story. Disney is calling the film "The Beast," and since Ahearne was chosen, many are assuming that the studio is aiming for much darker take. No word if this will be another prequel, like "Oz." "Beauty and the Beast" is a French fairy tale from the 18th century. Just recently, Vanessa Hudgens starred in "Beastly," which is a modern version of the property. The CW then launched a "Beauty and the Beast" TV series. And Guillermo Del Toro is developing his own live-action film that has Emma Watson attached to star. »

Disney Reimagining Beauty and the Beast with Live-Action The Beast

12 March 2013 12:04 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney has plans to develop a live-action adaptation of the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast titled The Beast. The studio has hired Trance scribe Joe Ahearne to write the re-imagining.

The classic French tale follows Belle whose father is taken captive by the Beast after being lost in the woods. The young woman agrees to trade her life for her fathers and ends up falling in love with him. This releases a witch's curse on the Beast, which turned him into the monster.

Guillermo del Toro is also set to direct a different adaption of Beauty and the Beast, which has Emma Stone starring. David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producing.

No production schedule has been released.

The Beast comes to theaters in 2015. »

Disney is in talks with UK writer Joe Ahearne ("Trance") to pen a 3D live action re-invention of "Beauty and the Beast".

Disney adds another live action fairytale to its slate

11 March 2013 11:34 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 12 Mar 2013 - 06:33

A live action Beauty And The Beast is in the works at Disney, with a one-time Doctor Who director penning the script...

The sizeable opening for Oz The Great And Powerful over the weekend, with nearly $150m in the bank worldwide already, marks the second time that Disney has scored very big with what's effectively a live action fairy story.

Tim Burton's take on Alice In Wonderland took over $1bn in cinemas a couple of years back, and the studio has committed to more projects of a similar ilk. Malificent, based around the villain from Sleeping Beauty, is already well in the works, with a release next March (and Angelina Jolie leading the cast). After that, Kenneth Branagh is set to direct a live action take on Cinderella (which Emma Watson has turned down), and rumours persist that an Alice In Wonderland 2 is in the works. »

Disney Making a New Live-Action Beauty and the Beast

11 March 2013 10:50 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Disney knows Guillermo del Toro is making a "darker, beautiful, hopelessly romantic but Gothic" Beauty and the Beast for Warner Bros., and Disney does not care. The studio has hired Joe Ahearne, writer of Danny Boyle's new film Trance, to script a Beast-centric take on the fairy tale. The Beast "will be live action, and most certainly 3-D," writes Deadline. Add it to the list; fairy-tale movies will soon be the new superhero movies. »

Disney Sets Joe Ahearne to Pen Live-Action Beauty And The Beast Reimagining The Beast

11 March 2013 6:34 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fresh off the rather large opening weekend for Sam Raimi’s fantasy pic Oz the Great and Powerful, Disney is ready to put a new spin on yet another classic story.  Deadline reports that screenwriter Joe Ahearne, who most recently wrote Danny Boyle’s upcoming psychological thriller Trance, has been tapped to pen the script for a live-action reimagining of Beauty and the Beast called The Beast.  This seemingly sets off yet another Snow White-esque race between two fairy tale-themed pics, as Warner Bros. has long been developing a new take on Beauty and the Beast with Guillermo del Toro directing and Emma Watson set to star.  Hit the jump for more on Disney’s latest move towards world domination. The development of Oz the Great and Powerful was a direct result of the massive success of Disney’s 2010 reimagining of Alice in Wonderland, which went on to gross over $1 billion worldwide. »
