Emma Watson For Del Toro’s Beauty and the Beast

Emma Watson For the past month, there have been many online reports that director Guillermo del Toro is seriously considering Emma Watson, who completed her role as “Hermione Granger” in the Harry Potter films, to star in his gothic film production of Beauty and the Beast.  While promoting her film Crazy, Stupid, Love, producer Denise Di Novi told ComingSoon.net that she was working with Mr. del Toro to adapt the classic fairy tale for film and Watson is lined up to play the leading role.

In a recent interview, Mr. del Toro confirmed that he spoke with the Harry Potter star:

How’s the tone of the Beauty and the Beast project coming?
Well, I met with Emma Watson about it because I’m very interested in doing the movie with her. She’s just perfect for the film, and we talked about the classic iteration of the tale. I love the sort of darker, beautiful, hopelessly romantic but Gothic take on the tale. We discussed this.

At the moment, there has been no official confirmation from Watson herself about accepting the role.  But we will definitely keep you updated.
