Guillermo del Toro has reportedly bowed out as director of the upcoming live-action take on classic fairy-tale Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson.

The Pacific Rim filmmaker has departed the Warner Brothers project, titled Beauty, due to scheduling conflicts. The search for del Toro’s replacement has already begun, however he remains involved in the film as a producer and screenwriter, according to Deadline.com.

Del Toro’s exit comes days after Disney bosses announced the studio is also planning to transform its 1991 animated hit Beauty and the Beast into a live-action adventure, with Bill Condon in the director’s chair.
