Stephen Chbosky Will Write and Direct Prince Charming Film
Stephen Chbosky, better known as the writer of the book and -later- screen adaptation of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, the 2012 teen drama starred by Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller.
As of right now, his latest film -which he directed and wrote- is Wonder, the film adaptation of the YA novel following the story of a boy born with a facial deformity who enters fifth grade. The movie, starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay, premieres this weekend.
Even though his latest film will finally see the day of light, Chbosky can’t quite rest just yet, as the writer-director has been hired by Disney to be in charge of Prince Charming, a reimagined take on the fairy tale trope.
Before Chbosky came into the picture, Matt Fogel (Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son) wrote the initial script for the project, which took on the character popularized in Disney’s fairy tale movies like Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Sleeping Beauty or Cinderella.
The official idea of the project is to take a look at the iconic prince from the point of view of his brother, who never quite lived up to the family name.
This is not the first time Chbosky worked with Disney, as he was the writer of the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast.
