Beauty and the Beast

With Disney just making one good film after another lately its no surprise that part of their live action take on classic cartoon movies has taken to them turning the best of them all, Beauty and the Beast into a live action film.

Of their live action films to date, they currently have Cinderella in cinemas in 3 weeks time and have already enjoyed great success with both Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent.

Now comes the turn of Beauty and the Beast and they are putting together a stellar cast for this one, with Harry Potter’s Emma Watson to star as Belle and now with upcoming star Dan Stevens (The Guest and Walk Among the Tomb Stones) to star as the Beast and Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6 and Dracula Untold) to star as Gaston.

That’s some pretty good names to get attached to the film that even leaves me, a self confessed action and thriller junkie pretty excited about what this film might actually bring.

Bill Condon is to direct what they are saying will be a live action musical, so it will be interesting to see what sort of tone they set this film on.

Beauty and the Beast, directed by Bill Condon and starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans and Emma Thompson is due in UK cinemas in 2016.
