Blake Lively & Leighton Meester lick ice cream on the new Rolling Stone cover. According to E! Online, Leighton is frontrunner to headline CBS Films’ Beastly, a modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Zac Efron was reportedly once up to play Beastly’s male lead, a 17-year-old looking for love who is turned into a monster by a fellow classmate.
Source: ‘Leighton really wants to do it. They are trying to figure out how she could do the two movies before she starts another season of Gossip Girl.’
Leighton is still in the studio working on music while her team continues to work on landing her a record deal at one of the major labels.
It was announced earlier this week that Meester will star in The Roommate as Rebecca, a college freshman who becomes dangerously obsessed with her dorm roommate.
