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 could be set to star in a musical comedy film helmed by Whiplash writer/director Damien Chazelle.

The former Harry Potter actress would play Mia, an aspiring actress in LA, in the film, titled La La Land.

Chazelle has described the film as “like Gene Kelly meets Thelonious Monk”, and told the Daily Telegraph that he has been working on the project for “five or six years”.

Watson will have to see if filming would clash with another of her upcoming films, according to Baz Bamigboye, but she has been wanting to do a musical for a while now.

La La Land will also star Miles Teller, returning to work with Chazelle after his turn as a drummer in Oscar-nominated Whiplash. He will play an aspiring jazz musician in the film.

Chazelle added that the musical is in an “original MGM-style”, and his musical collaborator on the film is Justin Hurwitz, who also composed the score of Whiplash.
