Short Synopsis

Kyle Kingson (Alex Pettyfer) is 17 and has it all - he's hot, popular, rich and gets whatever he wants... but he also has a vicious cruel side, fueled by his obsession with the 'in crowd' and his contempt for those who don't fit in. He finally targets the wrong person: Goth girl classmate Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen) who seeks revenge in the form of a spell that physically transforms him into someone unrecognizable - and horribly unattractive. The only way to reverse the curse is to find someone who will love him in his new form - a task he doesn't think possible. His only chance may rest in whether he can see beyond his superficial ways and find true love with an unassuming classmate (Vanessa Hudgens) who values everything he isn't.

Long Synopsis

Beastly is an edgy teen romance about learning how to see past false surfaces to discover true inner beauty.

Kyle Kingson (Alex Pettyfer) is 17 and has it all -- he's hot, popular, rich and gets whatever he wants...but he also has a vicious cruel side, fueled by his obsession with the 'in crowd' and his contempt for those who don't fit in. Prone to mocking and humiliating outcast classmates, he zeroes in on Goth girl Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen), inviting her to the school's extravagant environmental bash. Kendra accepts, and, true to form, Kyle blows her off in a particularly harsh fashion. She seeks revenge in the form of a spell that physically transforms him into someone unrecognizable -- and horribly unattractive. The only way to reverse the curse is to find someone who will love him in his new form -- a task he doesn't think possible.

Repulsed by his appearance, Kyle's insensitive father (Peter Krause) banishes him to Brooklyn with a sympathetic housekeeper (LisaGay Hamilton) and blind tutor (Neil Patrick Harris). As Kyle ponders how to overcome the curse and get his old life back, he chances upon a drug addict in the act of killing a threatening dealer. Seizing the opportunity, Kyle promises the addict freedom and safety for his daughter Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens) if she will agree to live in Kyle's Brooklyn home. Thus begins Kyle's journey to discover true love.

Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical) and Alex Pettyfer (Wild Child, Stormbreaker) star in Beastly for CBS Films, the film division within CBS Corporation (NYSE: CBS.A and CBS). Daniel Barnz (Phoebe In Wonderland) directed the project which completed principal photography in Montreal in August 2009. The film is scheduled for release in US theaters on March 18, 2011.
