New Movie Rumors for Dan Radcliffe, Emma Watson
By Hanako M. Ricks
hollywoodnews.com: With earlier news about projects for Harry Potter alums Rupert Grint and Bonnie Wright, you didn’t think the other two stars of the hit film series was just lying about, did you?
News has hit the web today that Dan Radcliffe has signed on for a starring role in the WWI drama, All Quiet on the Western Front. In this remake of the 1930 Oscar-winning picture of the same name, the story focuses on the character of Paul Baumer (Radcliffe), a young German soldier who has been fighting in France. It is based on a novel by Erich Maria Remarque, and production is scheduled to begin in Spring 201, after Radcliffe finishes his Broadway run of “How to Succeed Without Really Trying”.
Emma Watson was rumored to be considering a role in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which is also based on a novel – this one written by Stephen Chbosky, who is rumored to also be the screenwriter and director for the film. Logan Lerman, who played the title character in Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief (which was directed by Chris Columbus, who directed the first two Potter films), has also been tied to this project. Again, this is just a rumor at this point, but I will keep you updated on any news.
Good to see that the end of Harry Potter does not mean we’ve seen the last of the young stars!
