Emma Watson starring in new BEAUTY AND THE BEAST; Guillermo del Toro producing
Talk about a way to step out of Hermione’s shoes.
With the conclusion of the iconic HARRY POTTER film franchise this past weekend, one must wonder what is in store for the three stars; Rupert Grint, Daniel Radcliffe, and Emma Watson, moving forward. Well, at least for Watson, it means working on some massively intriguing projects.
ComingSoon has learned, thanks to the open book that is producer Denise Di Novi, that not only is she working on a new take on BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, but that she’ll be joined by producer Guillermo del Toro, and actress Emma Watson.
At this point, those are literally all the details that we have at this point with regards to the project, but personally, that’s all I need. Del Toro’s are perfect hands to put a project like this in, and Watson is an equally on the nose pick for the lead role.
This film joins MY WEEK WITH MARILYN and THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER as films that have this writer thinking that Ms. Watson may be the one POTTER star to keep the keenest of eye on. She’s a fantastic actress, and given her taste in projects, you won’t be seeing her phone it in any time soon.
