Emma Watson teams up again with “Perks” director for “While We’re Young”

Though for many she will always be the beloved Hermione Granger, Emma Watson has been proving over and over again how deep her acting skill goes through a variety of new roles. And she’s not done, yet! Her newest project, it has been reported, is While We’re Young, in which she will team up again with Stephen Chbosky, the director of The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

While We’re Young is the story of a 75-year-old woman who is granted her wish to become 29 again for a day, which she spends on an adventure with her granddaughter of the same age. There is no word, yet, on which part Emma will play.

This casting news comes on the heels of Emma’s success in her recent films The Bling Ring and of course, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, as well as her upcoming roles in Noah, Guillermo del Toro’s live action Beauty and the Beast, Your Voice in My Head, and another project with Potter producer David Heyman in Queen of the Tearling.

It seems that Emma will be very busy in the near future, and we are excited to see her in all of her various new roles! Which new film are you most excited to see Emma in? Let us know in the comments!
