About OotP (2006): "It's definitely an epic, it's much more of a complicated storyline, it's just darker."

Queen of the Tearling Update

Emma Watson will play Kelsea Glynn in the film adaptation of Erika Johansen’s upcoming Queen of the Tearling trilogy. The story is of a young woman, “raised by foster parents in a cottage hidden away in a remote forest. On her 19th birthday, Kelsea is removed from her home to take her rightful place as sovereign of a fictional post-utopian country that hides dark secrets and is menaced by a neighbouring monarch.”

“Before filming, Emma will have to learn to ride a horse, bulk up (not too much), and do weeks of combat training (including knife work and swordsmanship). She’ll also be taught how to snare rabbits and practise climbing trees. The Queen Of The Tearling is like Game Of Thrones and The Hunger Games meets Pulp Fiction; there’s a feminist perspective, but also a lot of bloody goings-on.”

David Heyman will produce, with Emma as an executive producer. A script is due soon and then a search for a director will begin. No projected filming date has been announced.

The first part of the Tearling trilogy will be published this month, July 8 in the US and July 17 in the UK.

    This book is a really good book. I’ve read it 3x so far and the last 2 chapters made me cry every time. lol Though I’m not quite sure I’d say it is a YA book because it has a very mature subject matter. Also it’s kind of funny but “The Queen’s Guard” use very colorful language which Kelsea never hearing those words before is very keen on learning. A few F bombs and MF though Kelsea is yet to drop an F bomb herself in the first book. lol Though there is some mentions of rape and even mentions of child rape. Blood shed and dismemberment so yeah I see why some relate it to GoT but seeing that kelsea is a YA and it is mostly first person then I can also see the YA rating though I’d say its for mature YA only. I loved the book and Kelsea is a very intriguing female character and I’d def recommend it. It’s also fun reading it and picturing Emma as Kelsea. Can’t wait for the movie.
