Disney has been putting together a live action adaptation of their classic princess movie; Beauty and the Beast. They dropped a big announcement last week announcing out of the blue that Harry Potter alumni, Emma Watson, was cast in the lead role of Belle.
Now information is coming out that Disney is set on trying to get Ryan Gosling signed on for the male lead role of the Beast. He is the studio’s top choice for the role and they have already sent an offer out to him exclusively. Gosling and Watson would certainly be a great pair on screen and would charm everyone in this age old story.
Bill Condon is set to direct the movie and Disney has David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman producing.
