Nowadays, the description “fairy tale re-imagining that stars (either, a popular or rising) young actress” is starting to become a bit tired. Earlier this year saw the arrival of Amanda Seyfried in Red Riding Hood; next year we’re getting two Snow White movies with Lilly Collins and Kirsten Stewart; and now Watson’s set for Beauty & the Beast. That’s not to mention Shana Feste’s Little Mermaid-inspired project (titled… Mermaid), which will likely aim to snag an up-and-coming starlet as the titular character as well.Skip to next paragraph
Screen Rant had a humble start back in 2003 as a place to rant about some of the dumber stuff related to the movie industry. Since then, the site has grown to cover more and more TV and movie news (and not just the dumb stuff) along with sometimes controversial movie reviews. The goal at Screen Rant is to cover stories and review movies from a middle ground/average person perspective.

It’s the talent working behind the scenes that makes each of these films sound all the more (or less) appealing. Case in point: Tarsem Singh calling the shots on Relativity’s Snow White project and del Toro offering input on Beauty and the Beast makes these fairy tale reworking sounds more enticing than, say, when Twilight helmer Catherine Hardwicke was announced as director of Red Riding Hood.
Fans of Watson probably won’t mind seeing her play the prettier character in the new Beauty and the Beast either. Here’s to hoping the actress’ career continues to go well, now that her days of playing the brilliant Hermione Granger in Harry Potter are behind her.
