This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
The rumor is that her Beast will be none other that Ryan Gosling!
According to the latest behind-the-scenes reports, Disney is all about getting the former Mouseketeer back and have straight-up offered RyGos the role!
If true, this could be the best casting of all time!
Ryan hasn't had a strong romantic role in a while, preferring to take on more ultraviolent fare, and to try his hand at directing.
This could mark a return to the Ryan we all know and love — strong, loyal, covered in soft fur.
OK, the last part will be crazy makeup, but still! We just hope Ryan accepts!
