Josh Gad, voice of Olaf in Frozen, is in final negotiations to join Disney's live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast.

Gad will play Le Fou, sidekick to Luke Evans' villainous Gaston. The film also stars Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast.

Beauty and the Beast is a remake of the Oscar-winning 1991 animated movie, in which a beautiful woman from a small town in the French countryside is taken captive by a prince who is cursed to look like a monster. Despite appearances and circumstances, the two fall in love.

Beauty and the Beast is expected to release in 2016.
