The movie Beastly, based on the YA novel by Alex Flinn has been moved from its original opening date of July 30th to March 18th, to make room for another teen movie  Charlie St. Cloud, is based on The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud, by Ben Sherwood.

Here’s a wonderful twist; the leads of each movie, Zac Efron in St. Cloud and Venessa Hudgens in Beastly, are romantically involved.

Why the move? Even a source as knowledgeable as MTV expresses surprise, saying, “…the inner workings of the film business are a mystery to most of those on the outside looking in. Sometimes, even the individuals closest to the projects are left in the dark.”

The book business is also left in the dark, with a movie tie-in of Beastly on the shelves and no movie to tie in to.
