Emma Watson: Incarceron's Leading Lady?

Emma Watson: Incarceron's Leading Lady?

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).

    I love Emma, I hate Lautner he sucks at acting so I hope Emma won’t take this role

    That would be quite a downgrade for her.

    Ugh. I know i’m delusional and it would never happen, but if she has to star in another young adult series i want her to be Katniss in the Hunger Games. I think she would be AMAZING as Katniss

    It will be hard for her to move on from the Potter films so good on her for taking a role that would be very different.

    Don’t do it Emma! She’s getting so many better offers than this. She doesn’t need to jump into another fantasy series. She’s going to move out of the teen movie scene for good once My Week With Marilyn comes out.

    She’s so perfect to play Claudia! I can’t wait to know more about the cast because this book is great!

    I think they would make an attractive pair, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for this one, I’d really like to see it happen.

    I love Emma but I don’t want her to be in a movie with Taylor Lautner, yuck.

    It would be a good thing for her. Look at Orlando Bloom : two big movies, and now nobody knows if we have to attach him to William or Legolas! He’s getting recognized as an actor and not an elf. Emma could probably be recognized as this if she do this movie too. And I don’t care about Lautner. I could be a good actor probably if it wasn’t for the poor (and crappy) twilight scripts!

    People need to understand there is no romance between Finn and Claudia. Two people from two different world. They don’t even appear together in the first book.

    I hope they get Emma. It would be hard though.

    If not they need to get a cool British young actress who can act.

    Please no Blake Lively are you listening????

    Emma DON’T do it, PLEASE!!!! Unless they re-cast Lautner….
    I have no idea what this role is about, if it’s good then I hope she gets it, but I seriously I didn’t think Emma would do another Fantasy series so soon. They may just be attaching her name to it to bring attention to the project.

    jean Says:

    @Celia: ABSOLUTELY AGREE WITH YOU!!!!!! I do not want to see her in this with Kautber as the lead! IMg I hope&pray it’s just that old rumour being recycled;

    g Says:

    BULLSH*T! Emma’s people said last time her name was involved she wasn’t a part of it; so SHUT UP JARED!!!!

    Where is Emma’s comment she is not doing this? I don’t see it and please find it for me if you are not making this up.

    Jared didn’t say Emma signed up. Just that she is the top on the wish list. What’s wrong with that?

    And what’s so bad about Taylor? He has the quality of a future action star.

    @g:

    Emma’s name gets attached to SO many freaking movies that I can’t even keep up with what her reps have denied. I know they denied the Dark Arc rumor…I don’t remember them denying this one.

    mally Says:

    lol, I’m sure she is the top contender…on the studio’s wish list. That doesn’t mean SHE actually has any interest in it. This movie doesn’t even have a director yet. She would never sign on for something at this point without knowing who the director will be.

    Emma Watson’s fair hair/skin would look good next to Lautner’s darker hair /skin. Anyone know what this movie is about?

    Celia Says:

    @truth:

    I looked it up…it’s complicated, but basically Emma would be playing Taylor’s sister if she was cast. These two look nothing alike.

    Kate Says:

    Better Selena Gomez than Emma Watson if they are going to be siblings! This is Lautner’s vehicle so I don’t think they are going to recast Taylor…And Emma is still in school so she doesn’t have time to do another blockbuster movie…unless she dropped out. I heard she is taking a break? Maybe she did really bad last semester and failed some of her courses because of the Harry Potter promotions and Marilyn filming? Hmmmmmm

    I thought she was taking a break while at college? LOL.
