As we reported back in September Emma’s rumoured role in “My Week with Marilyn” has now been confirmed! Emma is all set to play Lucy a wardrobe assistant who worked briefly on the set of the 1957 production of “The Prince and the Showgirl”. Emma is also set to share an on-screen relationship with fellow Brit actor Eddie Redmayne.
From the official press release:
Trademark Films and The Weinstein Company have announced that principal photography has started on My Week with Marilyn for 7 weeks at Pinewood Studios and on location in and around London. Michelle Williams plays the iconic Marilyn Monroe alongside a fantastic British cast including Eddie Redmayne, Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench, Dominic Cooper, Emma Watson and Julia Ormond. The film chronicles a week in the life of Marilyn Monroe in which she escapes the shackles of her Hollywood career and embraces British life with Colin Clark. Directed by Simon Curtis and produced by David Parfitt, the film is based on Colin Clark’s diaries and has been adapted for the screen by Adrian Hodges.
“My Week with Marilyn” is set to be filmed in London from October until early December (possibly January?) and will be released worldwide sometime in 2011. We’re still waiting on news on Emma’s other rumoured project, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”, but unfortunately nothing new has arisen.
I would like toupdate you on the last point of this post regarding Emma’s involvement in the project “The Perks of Being A Wallflower.”
The film’s screenwriter and director Stephen Chbosky (who also wrote the novel the film is based on) gave a speech at Slippery Rock University, and among other things he reportedly confirmed that
a) Emma will be starring in the film along with Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief)
b) The fim will be shooting in Pittsburgh, and
c) Will be released in US theatres sometime in 2012

I don’t know if this is true though, as there is no direct quote, but I hope it is!

Since it goes through January, do we think this will be a winter break thing? I had been thinking it seems likely for her Thanksgiving break originally, but since she lives in London anyway, maybe Christmas makes more sense.

Hmm .. I may have gotten the dates wrong; I did the maths in my head. I should’ve written early December instead of early January. EEP! D:
