Emma Watson Wants to Act While We're Young
A reunion with writer-director Stephen Chbosky

11 October 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Deadline

The last time Emma Watson collaborated with writer-director Stephen Chbosky, we got the delightful The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, which Chbosky adapted from his novel. They’re reuniting for a new project, this time working from Adena Halpern’s novel 29 for a film called While We’re Young.

This time, however, Chbosky is handing over script duties to (500) Days Of Summer duo Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter for a plot that appears to find a new way to tell a well-used fictional staple: the body-swap.

We’re introduced to a 75-year-old woman who still wants to squeeze as much out of life as possible, and who is happier spending time with her 29-year-old granddaughter than her 55-year-old daughter. On her birthday, she’s granted one wish and becomes 29 again for a day, spending it having an adventure with her granddaughter.

Watson, who recently topped an Empire reader’s poll for Sexiest Stars, has a busy schedule at the moment. She’s alreadyfilmed Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, which lands here on March 28, and is attached to Beauty And The Beast, Your Voice In My Head and Queen Of The Tearling, which she’ll also produce.
