    Josh Gad shared a photo with his fellow "Beauty and the Beast" co-stars Emma Watson, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline and Dan Stevens on Instagram Tuesday.

    Emma Thompson has signed on to play Mrs. Potts, Ian McKellen will star as Cosgworth, Audra McDonald will play Madame de la Grande Bouche and Gugu Mbatha-Raw will undoubtedly shine as Plumette in the upcoming Bill Condon-directed picture.

    Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards in 1991 for the animated classic version, will be scoring the reboot.

    According to the press release, the live-action movie will feature "new recordings of the original songs" in addition to new music written by Menken and Sir Tim Rice.

    Production was initially set to begin in the coming weeks at the Shepperton Studios in London, but it looks like the group got together a bit early.
