"Emma Thompson will play a little teapot, short and stout, complete with handle and spout.
 
The Oscar-winning actress is in negotiations to play Mrs Potts, the housekeeper turned into a teapot, in the live action film version of Disney’s Beauty And The Beast.
 
The kindly Mrs Potts helps Belle, the tale’s heroine, sort out her romantic entanglements. Emma Watson will star as Belle.
 
Director Bill Condon has been working with composer Alan Menken about which songs from the 1991 animated movie will feature in the new picture.
 
I suspect all of them, because they've become popular classics."

HEHE OH YEAH Elena ;) Ryan Gosling...hot hot hot ;) if I had my picking I would choose Rupert- for all obvious reasons because they are former co-stars plus buds but also best chemistry on planet IMO-but also Rupert looks like a lion with some of his reactions in HP.

Emma Thompson sounds perfect ;) who else do you all see? I see Cogsworth played by Nathan Lane-I saw him in Mirror, Mirror and just see him as that role :)

Who do you all see as The Beast and other characters? Like Gaston? He is probably way too old but I see Patrick Wharbutton.
For Beast, I truly can't think of the perfect Beast...

I am so freakin excited for this!!!!!!

Who knows Elena ;) I love that the HP cast are with each other in their projects- I believe it is what most British actors do, but I think it is sweet :)

Very cool Roberto! :) Emma will nail her singing...anyone see Moulin Rouge? Nicole Kidman was AWESOME. Sorry just thought of Moulin Rouge for some reason LOL

Just confirming that she's currently in lessons.

 

The other one confirms that production will begin in May in the U.K.

 

My guess would be at Pinewood.

Oh, production, okay, and I understood that she's at lessons coz she mentioned she has to, at the amount of singing in the film.

Thanks Rob!

I can't wait for this movie, I am really happy and also excited for Emma on her role. <3


Concerning the beast, there is actually a french version of beauty and the Beast that is quite reacent, and they did a good job with the graphics, the special effects, etc... 
 



Watched that movie too, and they really did a good job on the movie. I like the effects, graphics and all. (:

Variety and The Wrap reporting that Luke Evans is close to a deal as Gaston.

 

The Wrap says that Eddie Redmayne was offered the role first but passed on it, giving it up to Evans.

THR is reporting Dan Stevens is in talks to play the Beast.

 

Stevens was in 'The Guest' last year, which is a great 80's throwback horror/thriller with an amazing soundtrack.

 

 

He actually looks a lot like Gosling, so I guess they're looking for a certain type.

I have to say, Evans and Stevens are excellent choices here.

 

This is shaping up to be a truly proper British affair.

Loved Dan Stevens in Downton Abbey !!


Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

"We’re starting to shoot Beauty and the Beast for Disney and Allegiant on the same day, May 18th. Beauty and the Beast we’re wildly excited about. That’s shooting in London."

 

"On the Beauty and the Beast update, Lieberman also said the film stick to a “classic” approach to the material, but will introduce “new elements” and new characters."
