Producer Denise Di Novi (Crazy, Stupid, Love) recently told ComingSoon that she is developing a new version of a Beauty and The Beast film with Guilllermo Del Toro (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth) producing and Emma Watson (Harry Potter films) already set to star in the film.
The ever busy Del Toro’s current directing project is the sci-fi film Pacific Rim, which is about to start production.
Emma Watson just broke box office records this past weekend with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. She will next be seen in My Week With Marilyn later this year and The Perks of Being a Wallflower in 2012.
The most recent adaptation happened just this year with Beastly, but one of the best adaptations is Jean Cocteau’s Beauty and the Beast… and Criterion has just released it on Blu-ray today!
