Emma Watson and Logan Lerman in The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Hollywood Theatre in Dormont

The Hollywood Theater in Dormont, returning to life in May after a year of being dark, is coming back in style. It will serve as a location for "The Perks of Being a Wallflower."


The source novel, by Upper St. Clair native Stephen Chbosky, includes scenes of costumed characters enjoying the cult classic "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" at a movie theater. A contract reportedly has been signed for the Dormont theater to serve as a backdrop for those scenes.


Chbosky is adapting his book and directing the movie version starring Logan Lerman and Emma Watson along with Mae Whitman and Nina Dobrev. It will start shooting before "The Dark Knight Rises" in Pittsburgh.

It's going to be weird to see Emma in costume for the scenes where the characters preform 'the rocky horror picture show'. It's going to be hard to shake of the Hermione-image.
This film is going to be completely something else and I wonder how she will do. I can't wait when we see some footage/trailer/something.
When I was still a teenager and still very much in my teenage angst period, I liked the book. Now I usually hate that kind of stuff, so I wonder if I'm going to like the film or not.

This might just be the role that let's emma shake her Hermione image. So far, I'm liking it. I never read the book, but the story sounds exciting. I think she'll do great. It's going to be exciting seeing her play another role.

watson tend to be overy dramatic and do over the top acting, it would be interesting to see her in this film.
