Emma Watson has already been confirmed to star as Belle in Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast, but who will be her leading man. Rumors are now out that the role may have been offered to…Ryan Gosling.
According to The Tracking Board, Gosling is indeed the top choice of Disney to star in Beauty and the Beast.
Apparently, he’s even been offered the role, but there is no word as to whether or not he is leaning toward taking the part or not.
The remake of the 1991 animated film Has Watson starring as belle and Gosling would take the part of Beast, if he were to accept. Bill Condon will be directing the film while David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman produce.
Production on Beauty and the Beast is slated to begin sometime this year and a release date has not yet been announced.
Ryan Gosling as Beast? Well, it is now rumored to possibly happen, but it all depends on if he will take the part. It will be interesting to see what happens in the near future as something will have to be touched on by either Gosling or Disney soon since it’s now out there.
