Emma Watson and Logan Lerman to star in The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
It’s rare that an author of a critically acclaimed novel gets to write his own script and direct the film adaptation of his book, but that’s exactly the opportunity Stephen Chbosky is getting. He will be writing and directing the film THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER and has set Harry Potter’s Emma Watson and Percy Jackson’s Logan Lerman to star. You can’t argue with the casting since the guy who wrote the book chose the cast.
The book is a coming-of-age drama is about a regular kid growing up in high school and dealing with first dates, new friends, sex, drugs and other challenges teenagers face. Although my high school days are way behind me, I always enjoy a good coming-of-age film and I’m excited to see Watson in something other than Harry Potter.
