With the Harry Potter franchise over, Emma Watson, along with the rest of the cast, will likely be seen in and wanted for much different roles. Daniel Radcliffe can be seen in the upcoming horror drama The Woman in Black and Rupert Grint is scheduled to star in a war film called Comrade. The kids we knew as wizards have now grown up.
According to Perez Hilton, Emma Watson is already being rumored for Tom Hooper’s new version of Les Miserables.
Watson is set to compete against Lucy Hale, Hayden Panettiere and Miranda Cosgrove for one of the two roles being offered. They are Eponine and Cosette. Amy Adams is also wanted for the role of Fantine.
The cast already includes Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean and not too long ago, we reported on the possibility of either Russell Crowe or Paul Bettany joining Jackman. If it all comes together, this could be one big movie and a worthy adaptation of the play.
Filming is scheduled to begin in February 2012. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on future casting news.
