BEAUTY & THE BEAST: Emma Watson to Star in Disney Version

Emma-Watson-600x799For quite some time Emma Watson had been attached to a proposed Guillermo del Toro live action production of Beauty and the Beast. Like many of the director’s announced projects, this one has gone silent. However, it seems that Ms. Watson (best known, of course, as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films) will get to play Belle after all according to this official announcement from Disney: “Actress Emma Watson has been cast as Belle in Disney’s upcoming live-action interpretation of Beauty and the Beast. The film is directed by Bill Condon and produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman. Production is anticipated to begin later this year.”
