Emma Watson is passing up the glass slippers and hitting the books instead -- but not as her iconic role, Hermione Granger in 'Harry Potter.' Emma will be playing Belle in a new 'Beauty and the Beast' live-action film instead of looking for her Prince Charming as Cinderella for Disney.
Emma will be working with Director Guillermo del Toro in the new Warner Bros. flick. It won't begin production for a while, but Guillermo expects the movie to be complete in the next few years.
"We started working on the script and it's going to go next summer," Emma says of her recent meeting with the director. "It's so funny, obviously I've been doing a lot of other work, and I was nervous. I was like, 'Is this going to go away?' And Guillermo is so psyched about it, and he's been thinking about it so much."
