According to Wikipedia, here’s the plot: “Kyle Kingsbury, rich, handsome and popular, is turned into a beast when he plays a mean practical joke on a distasteful girl in his class, who is really a witch in disguise. He is locked in a mansion-like apartment by his shallow, image-obsessed father. His only company is his housekeeper, Magda, and, at his request, a tutor named Will. Kyle has two years to truly fall in love with someone and earn their love in return, or remain a beast forever. After a year of being in this state, and trying and failing to find love, Kyle changes his name to Adrian to reflect his feelings of being a completely different person from the conceited, materialistic boy he used to be. When a robber stumbles into his garden Adrian offers him a deal; he won't report the robber to the police if the robber brings Adrian his daughter, Linda (Hudgens). She is Adrian's last chance to break the spell before his two years are up.”
The CBS Films (does that mean it will go to theaters or television?) is being directed by newcomer Daniel Barnz. In other words, Doogie Howzer will steal the show no matter who plays Kyle Kingsbury, as he did in the Harold and Kumar series.
Based on some book written by someone other than Tony Hillerman, so who cares.
Scheduled to be released July of next year. After that, Hudgens is set to film "Sucker Punch," for release in March 2011.
There's rumor of a 23rd James Bond film - I believe Hudgens would make the perfect Bond girl! Wake up, Hollywood.
