Luke Evans to Star as Gaston in Disney’s Live-Action ‘Beauty and the Beast’

“The Hobbit” actor Luke Evans is in talks to play Gaston opposite Emma Watson in Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast,” Variety reports.

Bill Condon (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn”) is directing from a script penned by Evan Spiliotopoulos and rewritten by Stephen Chbosky (“The Perks of Being a Wallflower”).

Disney released the animated version of “Beauty and the Beast” in 1991 to great success, grossing $375 million worldwide, earning and Oscar nomination for best picture and inspiring a Broadway production. The live-action version will supposedly retain the original’s musical elements.

The studio has been dipping into its animated catalog of live-action retellings like “Maleficent” and the upcoming “Cinderella,” “Jungle Book” and “Pete’s Dragon.”
