After her decade-long stint as Hermione in the Harry Potter franchise, Emma Watson takes on dramatic roles next.
Her first post-Harry Potter movie is the biopic “My Week with Marilyn,” an upcoming British drama film directed by Simon Curtis and written by Adrian Hodges. It also stars Kenneth Branagh, Eddie Redmayne, Dominic Cooper and Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe.
Emma will play the role of Lucy in the movie and it’s slated to open in theaters November of this year.
Her next project is “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” an upcoming American adaptation of the epistolary novel of the same name. It is currently being directed by the novel’s author Stephen Chbosky.
The film is scheduled to be released next year.
