Two years ago there were rumors of a Cinderella film with Emma Watson that never came to fruition. No surprise. That's Hollywood. Now with all of the end of the saga Harry Potter buzz, the news mill is announcing that Emma is slated not to play Cinderella but Beauty/Belle in Beauty and the Beast.
From Emma Watson to Headline Beauty and the Beast at ComingSoon.net:
The eternally-busy Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth) may have already lined-up another upcoming project. Crazy, Stupid, Love producer Denise Di Novi told ComingSoon.net at that film's New York junket today that she's developing an adaptation of Beauty and the Beast alongside del Toro and that Emma Watson is lined up to star.I'm just happy it's not another Snow White. Snow White is everywhere in the next year. And, well, I prefer Emma over Kirsten Stewart and I also prefer Beauty and the Beast, so this one appeals that way, too.
