Emma Watson will star in Guillermo Del Toro’s Beauty and the Beast

Harry Potter star Emma Watson to headline the Warner Bros film tentatively called ‘Beauty’

Emma Watson will star in a Guillermo Del Toro-directed version of the Beauty and The Beast called Beauty, according to The Hollywood Reporter. With a script to be written by BBC veteran Andrew Davies, it’s the actress’s first big project following the Harry Potter films. When Del Toro will get the time to direct it remains to be seen, however – he’s currently working on big sci-fi picture Pacific Rim, which will feature giant robots trashing monsters, while he’s also producing the ABC TV adaptation of The Incredible Hulk. On top of that, he’s overseeing development of the videogame InSane for release in 2013.
