Del Toro, Watson Team For “Beauty”

Guillermo del Toro is attached to direct and Emma Watson is attached to star in “Beauty” at Warner Bros. Pictures says Heat Vision.

Andrew Davies (“The Three Musketeers,” “Bridget Jones’ Diary”) is writing this new take on Beauty and the Beast which was originally an adaptation of Robin McKinley’s novel “Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of the Beauty and the Beast” but has since evolved into something quite different.

Denise De Novi and Alison Greenspan will produce. Del Toro is currently shooting “Pacific Rim” in Toronto.
