Disney looks to be bringing together an all-British cast for the film
Attention, anglophiles: Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens will star opposite Harry Potter alum Emma Watson in Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast.
Watson, too, will re-enter the spotlight with Beauty and the Beast. After retiring Hermione Granger in 2011, she has starred in smaller films like The Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Bling Ring and made the occasional brief appearance in summer blockbusters like This Is the End.
Disney looks to be bringing together an all-British cast for the film, plucking stars from the most popular English franchises. Welsh-born Luke Evans, who starred in The Hobbit and the last Fast & Furious movie, is in talks to play the villain, Gaston. The studio similarly chose British leads for the live-action Cinderella movie, which opens March 13 and stars Game of Thrones’ Richard Madden and another Downton Abbey actor, Lily James.
The company set in motion a plan to remake several of its classic animated films as live-action movies after the Sleeping Beauty-inspired Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie, grossed $758.4 million worldwide last year.
Emma Watson, Victoria Beckham and Lena Dunham are among the most inspirational women of the decade, according to Grazia.
The poll, to celebrate the magazine’s 10th birthday, asked readers who they considered to be the most influential women over the past 10 years.
In the entertainment category, Harry Potter star Watson triumphed over Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian. She was recognised for her role as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, through which she launched the gender equality campaign #HeForShe.
Emma really prove her acting chops in the sinister new thriller Regression.
The film is set in 1990s Minnesota and focuses on traumatised Angela, played by Emma, who accuses her father John [played by David Dencik], of an unspeakable crime.
After he admits his guilt, despite having no recollection of committing the atrocity, Detective Bruce Kenner [Ethan Hawke] begins to investigate further.
Renowned psychologist Dr. Raines [David Thewlis] is brought in to help him relive his memories, which is the catalyst for uncovering a national conspiracy.
