Beauty and the Beast: del Toro and Watson’s discussions

In his latest interview with NY Magazine, director Guillermo del Toro talked a little about the upcoming movie production Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson set to star.

How’s the tone of the Beauty and the Beast project coming?
Well, I met with Emma Watson about it because I’m very interested in doing the movie with her. She’s just perfect for the film, and we talked about the classic iteration of the tale. I love the sort of darker, beautiful, hopelessly romantic but Gothic take on the tale. We discussed this.
