Emma Watson Books 'Queen of the Tearling'

Looks like Emma Watson is headed back to the fantasy realm.

According to Variety, the 23-year-old actress is reuniting with her Harry Potter producer David Heymen for the big-screen adaption of “Queen of the Tearling”, a trilogy book series by Erika Johansen.

According to HarperCollins, the book is “set three centuries after a small portion of the human race has populated a landmass that mysteriously emerged in the wake of an environmental catastrophe, the series follows nineteen-year-old princess Kelsea Glynn, who must reclaim her deceased mother’s throne and redeem her kingdom, the Tearling, from forces of corruption and dark magic of The Red Queen, the sorceress-tyrant of the neighboring country, Mortmesne.”

The first book is expected to hit shelves in 2014.

    The first book isn’t even going to be released til next year, there’s nothing TO think because we know absolutely nothing about it. Nor do we know if it will see the light of day!

    isn’t she a tad too old to play 19…

  • Laylana

    @huh: She may be 23 but she can certainly pass off as 18-19

    Sounds awesome! That’s weird they are already casting the movie when the books haven’t even been released.
