Emma Watson to star in Guillermo del Toro's 'Beauty and the Beast'(Read article summary)
‘Harry Potter’ starlet Emma Watson is set to star in a new version of ‘Beauty and the Beast,' as co-conceived by Guillermo del Toro.
As much as we all love Guillermo del Toro, somebody needs to remind him that he can’t be involved with EVERY upcoming Hollywood movie.
The latest project set to utilize the creative talents of the Pan’s Labyrinth filmmaker is a new version of Beauty and the Beast, as is being co-conceived by Denise Di Novi, the producer of early Tim Burton titles like Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Ed Wood. Suffice it to say, she and del Toro are undoubtedly planning a darker spin on the famous fairy tale.
According to Coming Soon, Emma Watson is set to headline the film, which would be her first post-Harry Potter starring role in a fantasy genre piece. She will next appear in the historical drama My Week with Marilyn later this year, and is also onboard for the coming-of-age novel adaptation, The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
