Hi Bryan Here….
So following Guillermo’s work on ‘Pacific Rim’, he is in line to direct a re-imagining of ‘Beauty and the Beast’. And Emma Watson (Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films) is in final talks to star. In my eyes, Guillermo can do no wrong. He is amazing. How awesome will it be to see this done by the same guy who did ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ and ‘Hellboy’?
Speaking of ‘Hellboy’, Ron Perlman who played Hellboy also played the Beast in the Beauty and the Beast tv series in the 80’s. Andrew Davies who wrote ‘Bridget Jones Diary’ will write the script.
This is awesome. And how cool would it be if Guillermo got Perlman to reprise his role as Beast?
