Emma Watson and Logan Lerman Could Get 'Perks of Being a Wallflower'


The 'Harry Potter' thesp and the 'Percy Jackson' actor are reportedly in talks to star in the indie movie based on an epistolary novel.

As "Harry Potter" film franchise is going to end with "Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows", Emma Watson has begun looking for her new starring vehicle. According to Variety, the British star is now circling "The Perks of Being a Wallflower". She will possibly team up with Logan Lerman as he is reportedly also in talks to take a lead role in this upcoming drama, but the characters that might be tackled by the two are not yet known.

Despite the big names mentioned as contenders for the cast, the movie itself is planned to be a low-budget indie production. Directed and written by Stephen Chbosky, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" is based on Stephen Chbosky's 1999 novel of the same title which tells the story of a shy and unpopular teenager who describes his life by writing a series of letters to an anonymous person and explores the awkward times of adolescence, including drug use and sexuality.

Emma Watson is widely known for her portrayal of Hermione Granger in "Harry Potter" film series. The 20-year-old girl who is currently a student at Brown University in Rhode Island appeared in 2007 TV movie "Ballet Shoes" and provided a voice in 2008 animation "The Tale of Despereaux".

Meanwhile, Logan Lerman made his breakthrough after playing the titular character in "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief". However, the 18-year-old star has previously starred in several movies such as 2004 "The Butterfly Effect" and 2006 "Hoot". He had been mentioned several times to take the role of Peter Parker in an untitled Spider-Man reboot, but the news was never confirmed.
