Emma Watson wants a laugh

Harry Potter star Emma Watson says she'd like to star in a comedy movie next.

The actress - who finished filming the hit franchise last year - says she's looking forward to her future roles. The 21-year-old also confessed that she would like to act in a low-budget film to experience something different.

Meanwhile Emma is thought to have landed the lead role in the remake of the Disney classic "Beauty & The Beast."

The update will be directed by Guillermo del Toro.

The news of Emma's casting was revealed by the movie's producer Denise Di Novi.
