After Harry Potter series, actor Emma Watson is all set to star in a new film, which will be an adaptation of Beauty and the Beast.
Contactmusic.com reports that she will take the lead role in the new version of the traditional fairytale and The Strain trilogy director Guillermo Del Toro will helm the project.
While the 21-year-old has no other leading roles lined up, she has two small parts in The Perks of Being a Wallflower and My Week with Marilyn, both of which are set to release next year.
The classic has already been adapted into film many times, including an animated version by Walt Disney in 1991 and a modern take starring Alex Pettyfer titled Beastly that released earlier this year.
