Yeah mr Del Toro. But he is not the only one, and so Emma can make another film in the meantime, or something else, like school.

The project has been pushed back while del Toro works out his methods for realizing The Beast, but Watson says it will be "a terrifying Beast, which is why I want to make it".

So the Beast is gonna be beastly, not an oversexed furry à la Twilight? Noice.

I am more terrified about the fact, that she is again doing a fairytale - movie. Why is it not possible for her to get a part in a real good movie? And: does she get no real good offers that she must deside to produce her own movie (after a book, not even released?).

It definitely seems like she has been pigeonholed as a "fantasy" actress. Which isn't the same as a "period drama" actress, but arguably just as undesirable.

In the meantime I came more and more to the conclution, that the members of the movie business having a different look on her then her fans., Otherwise the missing of at least ONE good role.offer for her is not understandable.

You're ignoring every movie she's ever done after HP.

 

Beauty will be the first fantasy movie she stars in, assuming it even goes into production next year.

 

 

Also, how can she be pidgeonholed when she's the one who approached del Toro, and would only agree to do it if he directed?

 

She didn't pursue this because of the genre, she's doing it to work with del Toro.

Pardon?

Movies in the fantasy genre (counting Noah, B&B, and Tearling): 11

Other genres (not counting cameos): 3
 

Also, how can she be pidgeonholed when she's the one who approached del Toro, and would only agree to do it if he directed?

If she got into it willingly doesn't change the result much, I think. It's certainly not coincidence that she is still most widely known for her work in this genre; her way was partly pre-determined, and she probably did not foresee all that back when HP started.

I have to correct the above number of non-fantasy movies to 4. Forgot Ballet Shoes (never seen that one). But I also counted Tearling as only 1 movie, so...

First of all, I was talking about the movies after HP.

 

I was also talking about movies she's actually shot, which doesn't include Beauty or Tearling.

 

Also, Noah is a biblical epic. It has about as much fantasy as Ben-Hur or Passion of the Christ.

 

 

Since HP, she's starred in 3 movies and they've each been in different genres.

 

Perks, Bling Ring, This Is The End, and Noah will be the movies that she'll be publicly associated with until at least 2015.

 

Those movies are on her resume right now. They're the ones that count, not projects that are in early development.

 

 

If she chooses to work on projects that involve fantasy, it isn't because she's limited to that. She's already proven she can work in a variety of genres.

 

 

When she signed on to Bling Ring, everybody said she just picked that role to get as far away from HP as she could.

 

Now that she's gonna be working on more fantasy stuff, people are going to say she's only good at fairy-tales and magic spells.

 

Can't she just pick stuff that she likes and not have to worry about people trying to reduce every choice she makes into some desperate ploy?

And why would we not count the HP movies when we're trying to establish what genre she has the most affinity towards? That doesn't make sense; just like not counting the movies she has in the pipeline but haven't been produced yet. They're gonna happen, and if not it still shows Emma's predisposition in selecting these roles.
 

Also, Noah is a biblical epic. It has about as much fantasy as Ben-Hur or Passion of the Christ.

AFAIK it's based on a graphic novel that's clearly in the fantasy genre (fighter/mage/priest?)
 
 

Perks, Bling Ring, This Is The End, and Noah will be the movies that she'll be publicly associated with until at least 2015.

Arguably, HP will loom taller than those four. Which is probably the reason why she's stayed in this genre.
 

If she chooses to work on projects that involve fantasy, it isn't because she's limited to that. She's already proven she can work in a variety of genres.

I wasn't talking about her abilities to act outside of the fantasy genre; that's not the point. If she was associated with period dramas, that also wouldn't mean that she's not flexible.

Emma hasnt done a single fantasy movie or time period piece since Potter ended...Perks was 90's and very true to life. Bling Ring is a crime drama about real life teens, and Noah depending on your beliefs is not fantasy either since it is the Bible story. Plus played herself in This is the End. If anything, Emma is big time spreading her acting wings...Potter ended 3 years ago filming-she can do whatever roles she wants. Kiera Knightly is an actress who does different roles but also is very known for playing period movies.

She has them all lined up now though. Also I'm wondering, again, why someone would think that people would simply forget about HP (and that her roots are therefore in the fantasy genre) just because she's also done Bling Ring. That seems highly unlikely.

Which might be what she's thinking, so when the project presented itself she thought "why not." She said after HP she wanted to avoid fantasy and franchises... but that was four years ago. And she did try new things. And now maybe she found she likes fantasy and wouldn't mind doing a franchise. That's cool.

She seems to have changed her mind, yes, although not overnight. I thought she doesn't want to be typecast in general, but it seems she has no problems being a household name in the fantasy genre, if not in period drama. Maybe she likes playing empowered witches more than subdued housewifes in corsets with suppressed yearnings. ô.ô

If her character is unique enough to be a departure from HP, then I don't see how it would be typecasting.

 

You don't typecast someone based on the genre, you typecast them based on their character or personality.

I doubt that Hermione, Ila and the Tearling character are vastly different. There are only so many variations on the "young woman with mystical powers" theme.

The upcoming project of del Toro's that is sure to grab a lot of attention is his retelling of "Beauty and the Beast," which currently has Emma Watson attached to it. The director said that she is, in fact, still involved and that they're close to casting a monstrous co-star for her. " 'Beauty and the Beast,' we're waiting to close on the Beast. We are weeks away from getting who plays the Beast," del Toro said. "We're talking to the makeup effects guys who are going to render the Beast. We're going to do a solid, fantastic makeup job. We're going to fuse digital and makeup in a way that I think is quite cutting edge."
