The script was written by Stephen Chbosky, who directed the 24-year-old actress in “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.”

The film will be directed by Bill Condon, who previously made Twilight: Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2.

Disney released its animated version of Beauty and the Beast in 1991, when it became a box-office success as well as the first animated film to be nominated for the best picture Oscar. Three of its songs were nominated for Oscars, with its title song, Beauty and the Beast carrying off the award.

Production is expected to begin later this year.
