Emma Watson (and her grown-up new do) is set to take on a grown-up role in an upcoming movie about Marilyn Monroe.
Emma will leave Hermione, Harry and Hogwarts behind to join Michelle Williams, Dominic Cooper and Judi Dench in My Week With Marilyn.
This will be Emma’s first role away from her character as Hermione in the Harry Potter movies. She will play Lucy, a young wardrobe assistant.
The film starts shooting at Pinewood Studios in October, and rumor has it we’ll get a little on-screen romance from her character.
Can’t wait to see what this little lady can do — and I hope she has no problem stepping outside of her (magic) box.
Emma is currently laying low as she tackles another semester at Brown, but that will probably change when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows hits theaters on November 19.
