U.K's News of the World claimed that Emma Watson has refused to return in final two "Harry Potter" films while Warner Bros. Pictures was optimistic that she would be back instead.
With Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint being positively signed for the final two installments of the "Harry Potter" franchise, the only big question left now is whether Emma Watson will also return as Hermione Granger in the projects.
Concerning to this matter, U.K's News of the World has shockingly brought in report that the actress has quitted the role and even told the producers she wouldn't change her mind even if they offered to double her pay to nearly $4 million.
"Emma doesn't want to do it anymore," Radcliffe commented as quoted by the paper. "She's tired of being known as 'that girl from Harry Potter.' "
In contrast to the tidbit, Warner Bros. Pictures, however, insisted that Watson likely would be back for the two films and expect to see her sign a contract soon for the sixth and seventh part of the series.
"We're extremely confident that Emma will be back for films six and seven," a spokesperson for Warner Bros. told CBBC Newsround.
Since everything is still unclear for the time being until there is official announcement of Watson's status on the flicks, do keep sticking to this site for further information on the case.
