Emma Watson is attached to star in The Queen of the Tearling, adapted from a fantasy trilogy by Erika Johansen, according to a report in Variety. Harry Potter’s David Heyman will produce the Warner Bros. project and Emma will be executive producer.
The trilogy is said to be similar to Game of Thrones. “Set three centuries after a small portion of the human race has populated a landmass that mysteriously emerged in the wake of an environmental catastrophe, the series follows nineteen-year-old princess Kelsea Glynn, who must reclaim her deceased mother’s throne and redeem her kingdom, the Tearling, from forces of corruption and dark magic of The Red Queen, the sorceress-tyrant of the neighboring country, Mortmesne” The books have not been published yet (Harper Collins, 2014) and no director or scriptwriter has been selected so the project is in early development.

Actor Richard Griffiths passed away yesterday from complications following heart surgery at age 65. He had a long and honored career, but was probably best known to Harry Potter fans as Harry’s uncle, Vernon Dursley. He also appeared with Emma Watson as Great Uncle Matthew in the 2007 BBC film Ballet Shoes.
Our condolences to Richard Griffiths’ family and friends.
