Emma Watson: Joining Logan Lerman in 'Noah'?

Emma Watson: Joining Logan Lerman in 'Noah'?

Emma Watson and Logan Lerman may be reuniting once again.

Deadline reports that the 22-year-old actress is in talks to play Ila, “a young woman who develops a close relationship with Noah’s son Shem.”

Russell Crowe will star as the title character, while Douglas Booth will play Shem and Logan will take on the role of Noah’s other son, Ham.

Directed by Darren Aronofsky, Noah is a close adaptation of the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark. In a world ravaged by human sin, Noah is given a divine mission: to build an Ark to save creation from the coming flood.

The pic is set to release in March 2014.

    Awesome! I hope so! Emma’s getting so many excellent roles!

  • helene

    I like her she’s so classy and charming…much more appealing than that alway grim face Kristen Stewart.

  • Charlotte

    Logan isn’t the only one that has worked with Emma, because Emma has worked with Douglas Booth too for Burberry FW 2009 Campaign x

    The great thing about Emma is that she settles for briiliant films instead of making many “rotten” films. I’d love to see her in that film.

    Another supporting role? Is Emma ever going to play lead? I think she’s playing it very very safe for someone who just got out of a big franchise. You would not see Kristen Stewart or Jennifer Lawrence settling for a fifth supporting role after completing their respective franchise three years after its release.
    Was Logan and Douglas Booth the best Aronofsky could get? Douglas Booth is more a model than an actor and Logan is too young looking to be married. He looks perpetually fifteen.

    @y: She’s gonna be Belle in Beauty and the Beast so you can shut up now.

  • londonlipton

    How is she fitting in University with these roles?

    She has said in interviews that school and her education was the most important thing to her. Yet she transferred from Brown to Oxford and is rarely there. She confuses me.

    i think you guys need to know what are Emma’s next movie projects. here they are; The Perks of Being a Wallflower (as Sam, come out this September), The Bling Ring (as Nicki, come out next year), End of the World (as herself, come out next year), Your Voice in My Head (as Emma Forrest, come out in 2012/2013), Beauty and the Beast (as Belle, come out next few years, + she said on her facebook page that the movie is in pre-production). those are the confirmed projects. and the still-rumour projects are Noah (as Illa, come out in 2014) & Kristy (a horror movie). in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bling Ring, Your Voice in My Head & Beauty and the Beast, she’ll play the female lead. xx

    Emma is sooooooo A W E S O M E

  • Ashley

    So excited to see Logan and Emma team up again. They seem to have good chemistry.

    Not female lead, when is she going to be THE LEAD? Female lead doesn’t mean anything. She is still supporting a male character in a male story. In snow white and the huntsman, Chris was the MALE lead but he was barely in the film. A film’s main lead is the most crucial character. xx

    Emma is THE LEAD in Bling Ring, Your Voice in My Head and the Beauty & Beast adaptation which is supposedly titled ‘Beauty’

  • emmy

    oh come on people who care lead or support role !!!! the most important is that she doing very well after HP and proving herself as a great and amazing actress with all these roles !!!!!!
    love her soo much and wishing her all the best >

  • Dan


    Emma will be THE LEAD in Your Voice in my Head and Beautyf and the Beast… She’s THE LEAD of the Bling Ring cast!

    She’s very clever about what roles she takes, supporting but important roles are better than a bored lead roles in a null movie!

  • Lantern

    Also worth noting the directors she is working with coming up: Sofia Coppola, Darren Aronofsky and Guillermo Del Toro. All hugely impressive. I’d rather see her working with awesome people like that and learning from the experience rather than sign up for a whole bunch of lead vanity projects.
    And also Kristen Stewart is playing a really minor role in On The Road, so there goes that argument. She’s doing it because she loves the book. It should come down to passion for the projects, not vanity over billing.

  • Charlotte

    yeah Dan’s right. Emma will be THE LEAD in The Bling Ring, Your Voice in My Head & Beauty and the Beast. and if Kristy isn’t just a rumour, she’ll be THE LEAD too, not just A FEMALE LEAD.
    and lots of people from film critics said that Your Voice in My Head will be an Oscar worthy. and i’m sure Bling Ring will receive good reviews (Sofia Coppola is the director), and so will Beauty and the Beast (Guillermo del Toro, the director, said that the movie will be a live action movie!). and i do think Noah will be a great movie! xx

  • lauren

    i think it’s kinda weird of them to do a movie together so soon after wallflower, but good for her if she is :)

    Logan Lerman playing Jewish, which is what he is (well, old testament, close enough).

  • ad

    I mean the role is Old Testament and Logan Lerman is Jewish.

  • sara

    I sort of lost it for Logan,I used to have the biggest crush on him but now he’s getting fat for some reason, I hope he doesn’t end up like Haley Joel Osment… most child stars do..
