Emma Watson isn’t having any trouble moving on from the Harry Potter franchise.
JustJared.com can exclusively reveal that the 20-year-old British actress is looking like the top contender to play leading lady Claudia in Incarceron, a young-adult fantasy and science fiction novel written by Catherine Fisher. Taylor Lautner is attached to star in a movie adaptation of the novel.
The book was first released in the U.S. last year and appeared on the New York Times children’s bestseller list. The second novel in the series, Sapphique, was released in paperback yesterday.
20th Century Fox owns the film rights to the book series and will be produced by John Palermo (X-Men: The Last Stand, Drive, Wolverine).
Not sure I believe it since Just Jared isn't exactly Variety, but I thought I'd bring it over.
