Disney may be putting a live-action Beauty and the Beast movie into production, but that hasn’t stopped Warner Brothers from developing its own take on the classic story. Unfortunately, Deadline is reporting that director Guillermo del Toro has just exited the project because of scheduling conflicts.
Now the studio is working to find a new director for the project, which will star Emma Watson. Del Toro is currently working post-production on his upcoming movie, Crimson Peak. The director is still scheduled to work as a producer on the film, and he even wrote the script for it. So even though he won’t be behind the camera, his presence will be felt.
