According to the Hollywood Reporter, the star of the movie musical Moulin Rouge is in final negotiations.

As tired as we are of this whole live-action thing from Disney, we’re kind of excited about seeing this cast come together for singing, dancing and of course the grey stuff.

The already all star line up includes Emma Watson (Belle), Dan Stevens (the Beast/the Prince), Luke Evans (Gaston), Josh Gad (LeFou), Ian McKellen (Cogsworth), Audra McDonald (Garderobe), Kevin Kline (Maurice) and Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts).
