Guillermo Del Toro Drops Out Of Directing Emma Watson In Beauty And The Beast


Bummer, at least one Beauty and the Beast retelling has suffered a setback. Deadline reports Guillermo del Toro has now dropped out of directing Beauty, the version of the classic fairy tale he had written and had attached Emma Watson to star in two years ago.

Watson is still attached, and del Toro is still "firmly" part of the movie, with his script still in place and the filmmaker himself still on board as a producer, but now Warner Bros are looking for a new director to take over. No word on how much of a revisionist take this will be, but surely it would have been and probably still will be dark and twisted and beautiful to look at.

Meanwhile, there's still Bill Condon's Disney version to look forward to, as well as a French version La Belle et la Bete with Lea Seydoux and Vincent Cassel.
