Because Guillermo del Toro doesn't have enough on his plate already, the folks over at ComingSoon are reporting that he's gearing up for an adaptation of 'Beauty and the Beast' and that Emma Watson's on board to star. We're gonna go out on a limb here and assume that Watson's gonna be taking on the mantle of Belle, but now that her days as Hermione Granger have come to an end, it looks like she's jumping head-first into the non-wizarding world of Hollywood.

No word yet on a release date or any other specifics for that matter, but with del Toro now at work on 'Pacific Rim' and Watson signed up for both 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' and 'My Week With Marilyn,' who knows how they're going to squeeze another movie into their packed schedules. Nevertheless, we're excited to see how these two pull it off.

Do you think Watson's a good fit to play Belle?
