Emma Watson To Star As Belle In 'Beauty And The Beast' Remake?
Actress Emma Watson is in the final stages of signing up to play Belle in an upcoming remake of Disney classic Beauty And The Beast, according to reports.
Last year, producer Denise Di Novi let slip during a movie junket that the Harry Potter star was holding discussions with director Guillermo del Toro over the role after he described her as the "perfect" actress for the part.
Now Watson is in the final stages of signing up to the movie, according to Variety.
The film will be called Beast and is slated for a 2014 release.
If Watson signs up, it will be one of her first post-Potter projects since waving farewell to the boy wizard franchise last year.
