The Perks of Being Emma Watson


Variety has reported that there’s talk of a movie version of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, the unconventional coming-of-age novel by Stephen Chbosky. Chbosky will be directing from his own screenplay. The novel is exceptional, one of those books every teenager ought to read before they turn 18. It’s right up there with Go Ask Alice. Because the link with the novel’s author is so strong, the movie version should be great.

Emma Watson is going to play the lead, and she’s made for it. I bashed her acting for ages saying she would have had more success as a model, but I think she’s really developed into quite a competant and complex actor who will be able to play the role as someone like Miley Cyrus or Lindsey Lohan never could.

Get’s my “highly anticipated” vote.
