Beyonce was reportedly considered for a role in Disney’s live action adaptation of Beauty and The Beast, after she previously collaborated with director Bill Condon.
11 years ago, Condon directed Beyonce in the big-screen adaptation of Dreamgirls, which remains her only performance in a big screen musical to date.
Now, he’s admitted that he tried to get her onboard once more for Beauty and The Beast for the role of speaking feather duster Plumette.
“I even tried to get her into Beauty & The Beast, but it wasn’t a big enough part”, he said.
“She would have made a good feather duster.”
Eventually, the role of Plumette went to Black Mirror actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
Condon didn’t reveal the precise reason why Beyonce didn’t take part, but it began filming mid-way through 2015, when she may well have been tied up recording 2016 album Lemonade.
If reports are to believed, it seems that new music could be on the horizon too, after it was claimed that Beyonce is working on new music and plotting a “surprise tour”.
