Emma to Star in ‘The Circle’

Confirmed by The Wrap – Rumor has it that Emma Watson will star in James Ponsoldt’s upcoming thriller The Circle. Tom Hanks will produce the adaptation of Dave Eggers’ recent best-selling novel, and star as the owner of The Circle, the “world’s most powerful internet company”. Emma will play Mae Holland, a recent graduate who can’t believe her luck when hired by the company, but soon finds out that things are not wonderful as they seem.

Production will start in September in California.

Ponsoldt in an interview with Collider said about Emma:

“I am a massive, massive fan of Emma. She’s one of my favorite actors. I mean, when we were first talking casting, I didn’t think that it would work out timing-wise because she’s doing Beauty and the Beast, but it sort of re-shifted and when we realized their schedule, we realized that it would be a possibility. I mean, I would get scared anytime I was like, working on a tight schedule where someone’s doing a huge, huge movie like that. My wife and I are actually having a kid later in the fall so it’s a super tight window for a lot of professional reasons and personal reasons, but in this case it looks like it’s gonna work so I’m excited.”

 

When Mae Holland is hired to work for the Circle, the world’s most powerful internet company, she feels she’s been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, links users’ personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. As Mae tours the open-plan office spaces, the towering glass dining facilities, the cozy dorms for those who spend nights at work, she is thrilled with the company’s modernity and activity. There are parties that last through the night, there are famous musicians playing on the lawn, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO. Mae can’t believe her luck, her great fortune to work for the most influential company in the world—even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public. What begins as the captivating story of one woman’s ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge.

“She’s Going to Blow Everybody Away”

In an interview with Red Carpet News, Beauty and the Beast director Bill Condon talked about filming and the casting of Emma Watson.

“It’s exciting, we’re into our first month of shooting. It’s just been every day, to be on these huge sets that represent the Beasts castle, to see these musical numbers, we’re all pinching ourselves. It’s just been a very exciting, very kind of realistic telling of that story.” He said about Emma, “Oh my God, I think she’s going to blow everybody away. We’ve already done two of her musical numbers. She’s a beautiful singer, a wonderful dancer. She’s become one for this movie, she’s just one of the hardest working people I’ve ever met, and she’s really doing a beautiful job so far.”

Queen of the Tearling

The Invasion of the Tearling, the second book in Erika Johansen’s series, was released today. Snitchseeker recently interviewed the author and asked her about Emma playing the lead in the film adaptation.

SnitchSeeker: Emma Watson is attached to play the lead, but in the books Kelsea is a bit overweight and doesn’t seem to fit the type. Is that an issue with you?
Johansen: Not at all. I was worried that they were going to pick a bad actress to play her – one of the various 18 to 25 set that I really feel can’t act. So when Emma Watson’s name came up, I was very excited. I wanted first and foremost a good actress who was actually intelligent for the role. I made Kelsea, for want of a better word, plain – that was a personal decision for me. But when it comes to movies, I understand it’s a very different world than the book. A book can do things it can’t and vice versa. So I never expected them to cast a plain unknown actress in the role. I was very excited just because, Emma Watson, she comes across as so smart in everything she says and does, and that is an integral feature of my heroine that I felt she would be able to really project.

SnitchSeeker: Our readers would agree with you.
Johansen: I can’t see her playing a stupid character. I don’t see it working out.

Snitchseeker also spoke with Johansen’s literary agent, Dorian Karchmar, about Emma’s involvement as star and executive producer.

“A pair of film agents at William Morris Endeavor, whose literary department represents Erika, read and fell in love with the debut in the wake of the book sale. With its interesting world-building and complex characters, including Kelsea Glynn, the flawed, compelling young queen at the center of the series, they hoped it might capture the imaginations of producer David Heyman and Emma Watson, who were looking to team up on a new project. It was incredibly exciting when Heyman, who has a first-look deal with Warner Brothers, and Watson both responded with great passion — Watson was so taken with the debut that she attached herself not only to star, but to executive produce. Screenplay writer Mark L. Smith has been brought on to adapt the book.”
