Former "Harry Potter" stars Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe are considering new roles.
According to Variety, Watson is in very early talks to portray Cinderella in a live action adaptation from Disney. Kenneth Branagh is on board to direct the project, which will also feature Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother.
Watson isn't a lock for those glass slippers, but it looks like Disney is hoping to make a casting decision soon. Variety reports that the studio would like to begin production at some point this fall, aiming for a 2014 release.
Radcliffe, meanwhile, is wrapping up negotiations to star in another adaptation of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein." (The 1994 "Frankenstein," funnily enough, was adapted by "Cinderella" director Branagh.)
Rupert Grint tapped to star in CBS comedy
The former "Potter" lead would play Igor in the gothic film, which will be directed by Paul McGuigan ("Push," "Lucky Number Slevin"). Production on "Frankenstein" is expected to begin in the fall.
The release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (released as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone in the United States) took place in 2001. The story follows Harry, a young boy who learns he is a wizard and is sent to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to begin his education; gaining the help of friends Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) along the way. Radcliffe received a seven figure salary for the lead role, but asserted that the fee was "not that important" to him;"

Emma Watson is a beautiful person and she can do anything she sets her mind too...
Daniel Radcliffe is an amazing person and he is really awesome and georgeous
emma watson is really pretty!!!!!!!
and still loves her boo...
Why don't they do Star cross-overs, as sets of show's stars age... So let's let Harry and Hermione and company take on the new Star Wars Ep VII roles, for example. Rupert as Luke, Danielle as Han, Emma as Chewbacca, and let the Twilight crew take on the new Terminator roles with Kristin as Sarah Connors and Robert as T1000.
Yeah, I'm on to something.
Wow, the thought process really taking off... so multiple celebrity cross-overs... along with the cast of Harry Potter moving to Star Wars, throw in Hanna Montana, so with Emma as Chewbacca, have Miley take on C3PO.
DD and Stabooks...suck
lookin for another motor.
Emma Watson is professionaly beautiful actoress in the world! She is not young anymore retard and age is just a number :) She is an adult now and can do whatever she wants. Case closed and u fail stupid troll :)
Your not good at it...

She's not that good at it.....

I love watching all the overnight work involved, staying up all night, writing about their jealousy towards actresses -
all that work and scripting only for the professionals to receive Victory......LMAO
Emma is a dud
emmmma and Potter need to be by themselves or this story will never end
Emma Watson as Cinderella and Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother sound like casting for a great adaptation! Laura Daltry
Right, because we need ANOTHER version of Cinderella... How about some creativity?
what kind of creativity?
The obligatory lesbian nude scene will be nice, though. We've seen Cate's "hooten-nannies" before so it'll be nice to Emma's little perky buds for once. Roger Daltry
are your special numbers created for Emma and her Crew...Do you understand why Emma is a dud now and we have no use for this actress.....
There is MY NUMBER 3--try too enjoy the day tooled free...

let her suffer...i want too be near him...i adore him.
i think we need too
Her heart beats for potter.
i would say no because he is not always on the hollywood scene.
We need to get it out asap....
Emma Watson is what we said before a complete dud...she is not likeable and she's a vicious and feel she is smarter then everyone else...she is a complete and utter train wreck...this is another pitty i would never ever go near –
So many errors. You're not very intelligent, are you?
Thinks she is... or is...? Maybe she is and you just aren't smart enough to know it, a case of "you don't know, what you don't know," or like Ayn Rand likes to tell us about Truth, in the case of Envy.
is a dud
She tricked you too...lol
DATES AND TIMES....
i want too see the print out asap–
condesending me and calling me tooz–
Oh, I'm so excited that they are going to do another Cinderella. She will be a very pretty one. I'm just a dancing around the room doing my happy dance. I don't know about that Frankenstein one, though. Will it be a cartoon? He kind of looks cartoonish. I saw a couple of those Harry Potter movies. They were kind of scary. I don't know if my mom knew I watched them. She is kinda strict about my tv watching. I think the babysitter was over that day. Sssshhhh, don't tell, k?
Am not, am not. I'm gonna tell my mom. I'm just a little girl. I'm not even 10 yet.
check before i head out
So do not tell your mom!

You gotta focus girlfriend...you messin up....
Not potter...frumpy failed.
DON'T WORRY...WHAT EMMMMMMMA WANTED.
Emma Watson is a dud....beautiful figure, but no pizazz, she acts like a wet noodle...she is not appealing in personality...that will always be her problem she needs too perk up - she is too young too be this boring.
did she bust the old one.
is not emma and not even close too a class act like grace kelly...dream on–
Really, Grace Kelly? Way to date yourself on that comparison. Emma Watson is beautiful.
I tried watching Daniel Radcliffe's flick,"Woman in Black". I couldn't get thru the 1st 15 min's of it. I hope Frankenstein is better.
They are from England. I can never understand their language.
I can understand them perfectly fine. Go back to school.
is so cute.
I like Emma Watson, and she is very pretty, but she's no Grace Kelly in the looks department. Radcliffe can do anything, I'm convinced.
I'm not a super fan of either of them. They seem nice, but I'd rather see other actors.
Emma Watson is prettier than Grace Kelly, so no.
you are a sick person
