Emma Watson to Play Lead Role in ‘Beauty and the Beast’

Reblogged from Patty

In her first post-Hermione starring role, Emma Watson has signed on as the lead in the new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast!

According to Perez Hilton, Emma is set to play the lead in Guillermo Del Toro’s adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. Not much is known about the movie, but if it’s like his previous work – he produced Pan’s Labyrinth – you can bet that it’s going to be pretty dark and maybe even a bit gritty!

Now that Emma’s done with playing the role of Hermione in Harry Potter, she’s keeping busy with this fall’s My Week With Marilyn and next year’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Can’t wait to see Emma play Belle/Beauty! Wonder who will play the role of the Beast…

Who do you think would make the perfect Beast to Emma’s Belle/Beauty?
