Emma Watson's Week With Marilyn -- NEW ROLE!

Congrats, Emma Watson!

The 20-year-old actress has booked a new role outside the world of Harry Potter.

According to The Daily Mail, Emma will be playing Lucy, a wardrobe assistant in the upcoming My Week With Marilyn. The film also stars Michelle Williams, Eddie Redmayne, Kenneth Branagh, Dominic Cooper and Judi Dench.

The movie tells the story of Colin Clark (Redmayne), who worked as Laurence Olivier’s assistant on the picture The Prince And The Showgirl, which starred bombshell Marilyn Monroe (Williams) and Olivier (Branagh), who also directed.

Principal shooting is set to begin on October 4. Since Lucy is a smaller role, Emma won’t be away from her studies at Brown University for long.

    Sounds like an AMAZING role!! I can’t wait to see this movie. Not just because of the (brilliant) Emma Watson, but the rest of the cast is FABULOUS! Sounds like a fantastic movie!! :D

    It will be pretty cool to see Emma play opposite Michelle Williams who will be playing the “erratic” Marilyn. It will also be interesting to see Emma play Eddie Redmayne’s love interest, because she mentioned awhile back that she had a crush on him.
