We've already got Emma Watson confirmed to play Belle in Disney's upcoming remake of Beauty and the Beast, but we've been dying to hear who else will star in this childhood fairytale favourite. So we were very excited to read that, according to VarietyLuke Evans is in negotiations to play the villainous Gaston (cue cries of joy). And the good news doesn't stop there, with Downtown Abbey's Dan Stevens also said to be in talks for the role of the Beast.

The remake is being directed by Bill Condon, with production scheduled to start later this year. We don't know about you, but we can't wait for the release date to be announced. Hurry up already!
