If there's a film tailor-made for Guillermo Del Toro it's a remake of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. Now it looks like Emma Watson will be playing the Beauty role in a remake produced by Del Toro and Denise Di Novi, according to ComingSoon.Net.
It's unclear if Del Toro would be directing the film, but as he has PACIFIC RIM in pre-production, it's more likely he's just producing (although a Del Toro-directed take on this film would be pretty amazing to see). Emma Watson's not sitting on her POTTER laurels either, with two more films coming out this year. A Del Toro-conceived Beast would be quite something, and if any filmmaker knows how to find the sympathy in the monster, it's Guillermo Del Toro.
