Hermoine Meets Jacob: Emma Watson Top Contender To Join Taylor Lautner In â€˜Incarceronâ€™
JustJared reports thatÂ Emma Watson is the top contender to join â€œIncarceronâ€ taking the pole position againstÂ Jennifer Lawrence andÂ Blake Lively who were alsoÂ listed as frontrunners for the part. Based on the young adult novel byÂ Catherine Fisher (why mess with a good formula), the story follows Finn (Lautner), â€œwho has lived his entire life in Incarceron, a savage, futuristic prison society. He meets the daughter of the warden, who is trapped in her own prison, a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like the 17th Century. She knows nothing of Incarceron except that it exists. She and Finn simultaneously find a crystal key that allows them to communicate and hatch an escape plan for Finn.â€ Watson would play Claudia, the wardenâ€™s daughter.
With both Watson and Lautner leaving major franchises that are about to come an endâ€”â€œHarry Potterâ€ and â€œTwilightâ€ respectivelyâ€”this is the kind of mega-pairing studio execs can only dream of, and for the actors, it ensures their bank accounts will remain very healthy as this is a potential franchise vehicle. The second book in the series, â€œSapphique,â€ hit stores shelves in paperback this week; the studio has the rights to the entire series.
