Emma Watson To Star In New ‘Beauty And The Beast’

Actress Emma Watson became a star over the last ten years because of her recurring role as Hermione Granger in the uber popular Harry Potter series of films.

But this ingenue will likely forge her own niche now that the series is completed.

Famed director/producer Guillermo Del Toro is gearing up to produce a new feature length adaptation of the classic story Beauty and the Beast.

This time around, we will have Emma Watson playing the ‘beauty’, totally fitting, no?

Watson has two projects set to be released soon, My Week With Marilyn co-starring Michelle Williams, as well as Perks of Being a Wall Flower which also stars Nina Dobrev of Vampire Diaries fame.

Now forget those silly Snow White films, this is a fairy tale movie I can’t wait to see!

“Beastly” just came out. Was that not an adaptation of Beauty and the Beast? I think they should make a “one every five years” rule about fairy tale remakes. They going to do another Alice in Wonderland this year too?
