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.

Logan is a good actor but he is not fit for this rule, we need the actor who was in bricks, another indie film, he would be soooo perfect but I think Emma Watson is perfect for Sam

ellen paige is too old to be sam. logan is perfect as charlie and emma will do a great job as sam. they're both great actors. anon is right. actors don't have to be at all like the characers they play. that is the main concept of acting. so suck it kaka.

Emma is an actress. Who cares about her image. It's her job to bring the character to life. Ellen Paige is way too old.

No way, Emma Watson is way too wholesome to play this role. someone like Ellen Page should play Sam.

I love this book and Logan is perfect for the role! I'm assuming Emma will be playing Sam and I can't think of anyone better! She's a very talented young actress and it will be nice to see her play a different role.
