It’s been a few years since the last Harry Potter film was released, but it’s quite evident that Emma Watson shows no sign of slowing down. This is the End, where Watson has a cameo role is showing this week, and next week her other movie, Bling Ring–the much anticipated Sofia Coppola movie–will finally hit the theaters.
Watson has a few more movie projects in the coming months, including Darren Aronofsky’s Noah (due to release next year), but her fans are definitely going to be very excited about the news that the HP actress will be starring in a new fantasy trilogy by Erika Johansen called Queen of the Tearling. It’s not quite Harry Potter, but Queen of the Tearling might offer all the magical stuff that a lot of people miss.
Although we still not have all the details regarding the upcoming movie project, it sure does look promising. Warner Brothers will be backing the trilogy, with David Heyman (also of Harry Potter) producing the film. Warner Bros. still hasn’t found a writer and a director for the trilogy, but the fact that Watson has been secured for the project is enough for some of us to assume that Queen of the Tearling is going to be a successful franchise.
