It looks as though Emma Watson has got some serious thinking to do. While the Harry Potter actress is currently attached to star in Warner Bros.. troubled Beauty and the Beast adaptation, the fact that Steven Chbosky has signed up to scribe Disney.s own planned reworking of the classic fairy-tale now creates the interesting possibility that she could wind up moving to the competing project. Watson has been attached to Warner Bros.. Beauty and the Beast for the last few months; however, after Guillermo del Toro pulled out of the project in June,Watson.s own involvement in the film is no longer guaranteed (even though the studio is still planning to move forward with the project once it has confirmed a replacement director). Now that Disney.s Beauty and the Beast has hired Stephen Chbosky as its writer, Entertainment Weekly has offered up the possibility that that Watson »
Taylor Swift speaks out on feminism, but is she a feminist?
At the United Nations on Sept. 20, the Harry Potter star debuted her new campaign HeForShe, a gender equality solidarity movement. "We want to end gender inequality," she said. "We want to try and galvanize as many men and boys as possible to be advocates for change."
News: Taylor Swift's Rolling Stone Cover Is Revealing
Now Swift is joining Emma in support on French Canadian television show Tout Le Monde saying, "So many girls out there say 'I'm not a feminist' because they think it means something angry or disgruntled or complaining…I just think that a lot of girls don’t know the definition and the fact that Emma got up and explained it, I think it's an incredible thing and I am happy »
Harry Potter alum Emma Watson and Rush star Daniel Bruhl have reportedly joined Colonia, a new political thriller based in Chile.
Set in the 1970s, Bruhl will feature as a man kidnapped by the secret police, who is then housed away in a sealed-off area of the country nicknamed Colonia Dignidad. With reports surfacing that nobody has ever escaped from the area, Bruhl’s wife Lena (Watson) goes on a mission to track down her husband and free him from imprisonment.
With shooting set to begin soon, and taking place in South America, Berlin, Munich and Luxembourg, this is a big project for all involved. It’ll be great to see Watson in a serious ‘thriller’ role, especially given her extensive acting credentials.
Colonia, directed by Florian Gallenberger, is set for release in late 2015.

Disney is continuing the trend of turning it's most iconic animated fairy tales into live-action adventures, and after adapting a number of original classics it goes after one of it's more recent movies. Though more than 20 years old, 1991's Beauty and the Beast help redefine what Disney animation could be, and it is now getting retold with human actors, courtesy of a screenplay by Stephen Chbosky.

At this time, Emma Watson is not officially signed on. She is still loosely attached to Warner Bros. »
According to Entertainment Weekly, Stephen Chbosky will write the adaptation of the 1991 animated classic.
The news comes after it was confirmed that Twilight's Bill Condon would bring the live-action movie to the big screen as director.
The next live-action project planned by the studio is Cinderella, which will focus on the tale's famous lost slipper.

Are Disney trying to jump aboard the young adult bandwagon with the latest piece of news? Or is this just another attempt at rejuvenating properties that are guaranteed to rake it in at the box office? You decide. According to EW, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower author-screenwriter-director-teenage saviour, Stephen Chbosky, has signed on to redraft a new version of the script for the studio’s upcoming Beauty And The Beast remake.
After the success of Wallflower, the move to enlist Chbosky might see a shift from the source material and into more adolescent waters. His take on growing up was one of those rare indie gems that truly captures what it means to have your younger years defined by music, friends and heavy, heavy introspection. He’s an author who’s got a grasp of what it means to be a kid, making him an ideal candidate to imbue »

The singer stalks his prey and engages in a blood-soaked romp.
On its own, the song's lyrics manage to objectify and degrade women. Paired with a blood-soaked video, it's downright disturbing.

A lyrical sampling: "Baby I'm preying on you tonight/Hunt you down/Eat you alive/Just like animals. Maybe you think that you can hide/I can smell your scent for miles/Just like animals."
We understand a good metaphor, but there's just something about comparing a woman – one which Levine is sexually interested in, by the way – to prey just doesn’t sit right. With feminism and human rights at the forefront of national consciousness (see: Emma Watson's passionate #HeForShe United Nations speech; also: the horrifying invasion of privacy faced by female celebrities who've had their private and personal »
Disney is taking its live-action Beauty and the Beast into full Ya territory.

If it wasn’t clear by recent, real life events, Emma Watson has always been, and probably always will be a bonafide badass. Speaking out at the United Nations in the name of gender equality and the fight for feminism is an incredible accomplishment that took guts and candor that many don’t possess. In the world of film, Watson has an undeniable track record of that same, extreme level of confidence and bravado. Girl’s going places and she’s not letting anyone stop her. That was clearly solidified in her childhood when she stepped into the wizarding world of the Harry Potter series and schooled everyone around her for a subsequent eight films. Hermione Granger is lauded as the brainy sidekick of the hero of the saga, a clever witch who does her homework and gets things done in order to help the gang succeed toward their next mission. But »

I like to think we're pretty on top of casting news, so this one kind of came out of nowhere, but it still sounds interesting. A press release has announced that Emma Watson and Daniel Brühl (Rush) will star in Florian Gallenberger's new film, Colonia. The story takes place in Chile in 1973, and has Watson playing a young woman who must join in a cult in order to save her husband (Brühl), who has been kidnapped by Pinochet's secret police. As the press release notes, this will be Watson's first real starring role since Harry Potter (at most, she's had co-leads to this point; here it sounds like she's the protagonist and Brühl is the supporting character), so that makes this project even more exciting. Principal photography on Colombia is about to begin, and it will shoot until the end of the year. Hit the jump for the press release. »

Since her days at Hogwarts came to an end, Emma Watson has largely played small parts in ensemble movies and, of course, given inspiring speeches at the Un.

When Daniel is abducted by General Pinochet’s secret police and carted off to a mysterious area in the south known as the Colonia Dignidad, Lena kicks off a quest to track him down.Though the man in charge of the Colonia, Paul Schafer, describes it as a charitable religious mission, it’s in fact in the grip of a cult – and Lena joins up »
Even though, as of late, Emma Watson has been making waves in her fight for gender equality, she is still an actor, and a pretty good one at that. And actors are always in search of their next gig, which she has just signed up for. She and Daniel Bruhl, the should have been Oscar nominated star of Rush (I'm not still bitter about that...), have joined the cast of Colonia for Oscar winner Florian Gallenberger. I am sure many of you out there are surprised to learn that Mr. Gallenberger is an Oscar winner, as was I. He won Best Live-Action Short Film in 2001 for Quiero ser (I want to be...). Admittedly, I am a complete novice when it comes to his films, so I will need to go back and check that short out, as well as his features Schatten der Zeit (Shadows of Time) and John Rabe »

Manuel here to bring you some news on your favorite wallflowers.

The film is directed by Florian Gallenberger (an Academy Award winner for Best Live Action Short) and has begun shooting in Luxembourg.
