The Hollywood Reporter, ehem, reports that Stevens will be joining Emma Watson who will play Belle in the film. Also more interesting is the fact that Luke Evans (Dracula Untold, The Hobbit) will be playing the man’s man Gaston in this picture.

Mind you also the film will be a straight up remake of the classic 1991 animated feature and not a “reimagining” like Maleficent. We’re just not sure if Mrs. Potts, Chip or even Lumiere will be part of this movie. Hope they do. So they can have THIS:

DON’T MISS:  Watch Arnold Schwarzenegger in the First Trailer for Zombie Drama "Maggie"

It will be directed by Bill Condon (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn”), from a script written by Stephen Chbosky.
