More infos about Perks of Being a Wallflower with Emma Watson and Logan Lerman

We're pleased to report that Hogwarts grad Emma Watson's next movie appears to have found a home in Hollywood. Last May, news came that Watson would pair with Logan Lerman in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, an adaptation of the controversial Stephen Chbosky novel — since its publication in 1999, it's become one of the top ten most banned books by the American Library Association — which Chbosky will direct himself from his own script.

The project was being independently produced by John Malkovich and it was unclear for a while if any studios were interested. But now Vulture hears that Summit Entertainment, the home of the Twilight franchise, is in talks to pick it up and plans to begin shooting Wallflower this June.

For those unfamiliar, the epistolary novel begins in Pittsburgh in August 1991 with a high school freshman named Charlie writing anonymous letters to strangers that detail his life as a social outcast, save for his friendship with two classmates — a step-brother and step-sister — who befriend him. Watson would play the step-sister, Sam; Lerman would play Charlie.

We’re told a formal announcement from the studio could come as early as this week or next.

Informations à retenir pour les francophones:
_ Le tournage devrait commencer en Juin
_ Les studios devraient officialiser tout ça cette semaine ou la semaine prochaine

Still no direct confirmation that Emma is going to be in the film...

I guess with the "no project in pipeline" statement from her people we can rule Emma out from the project?

I think emma representatives should work to confirm or deny every rumor about emma¡

Est-ce qu'on est sur que se soit Emma qui joueras ce rôle ?

Pour moi c'est sûr mais il y a toujours des gens qui doutent donc je pense qu'il est préférable d'attendre une confirmation des studios ou des agents d'Emma.

if it's for emma, she will give us the confirmation a day before the premiere, since it is its ornamental twitter

Dunno, her people's comment to snitchseeker to me is as clear as it comes. Compound it with the lukewarm message about the project on her webpage, I say she's not in.

She's in it.

If she was going to be in it she would have said it. Her people would have said it. This is not government classified information.

But then again the girl can never make up her mind as to what she wants to do so maybe it is best not for anything to be said until the wind stops blowing and she picks a side.

That what Snitchseeker said and this doesn't fit together.I know that many People asked already wether Emma is having Projects in the Future,not just to Snitchseeker and then after a long While the Tweet from her Rep's came about no Project in the Pipeline

and I can't forget what her Homepage wrote last Year "Don't get to exited" or something like that,which sounds that Emma wasn't really interessed,so I don't know the Reason why she would doing this.
Espicially what Emma said during HP Time last Year in a Magazine (don't know the Name anymore).
"That she doesn't want to take Role's with Smoking,Drugs,Alcohol etc,she doesn't want to loose the Hermione Image,because she is proud of it"

Well don't know,but this from her Rep's is standing higher than this Report for me,since they know Emma and her Projects

ps: hasn't Emma said to Snitchseeker she want's to do smaller Role's and Theatre?

Im from Pittsburgh where they will be filming. Still no news here on anything. You ahve to watch rumor and speculation no matter who confirms what. Until we hear it from her mouth or her people's we don't know. The internet is shady.
