Emma Watson is Moving on from Harry Potter to a Beautiful New Role

by at . Comments

It's time to move on from the Harry Potter franchise that made Emma Watson famous.  And she's doing it in a big way.  Makes sense to continue on this whirlwind that is the last Harry Potter film.

The record-breaking movie is just the catalyst for an amazing career for Watson and apparently she's moving on to star in a retelling of the beloved tale, Beauty and the Beast.

Producer Denise Di Novi made the announcement during a press junket for her new film Crazy, Stupid, Love, saying Watson was set to star in the film, helmed by Guillermo del Toro.

Di Novi didn't say much else, so we don't know any more than that Watson has signed on to the film.  No word yet on her beast or release date. 

Since the film is just starting to come on our radar, it probably won't be released until at least 2013, but expect to hear more about this magical retelling in the coming months.
