Writer and director, Stephen Chbosky (Wonder) has signed on to write the script for Disney’s live-action retelling of the Prince Charming fairytale, titled Charming. It’s possible that Chbosky will also direct the film.
The film is being produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman who both worked with Chbosky on Wonder as well as Tripp Vinson. Matt Fogel wrote the initial script for Charming which was written in the point of view of Prince Charming’s brother who never quite lived up to the family name.
Chbosky is author of the novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower which he later wrote and directed for film. He also wrote the screenplay for the movie version of Rent and worked on this year’s hit, Beauty and the Beast.
