It’s been two years since the era of Harry Potter ended. We saw these 3 actors grow up on the movie screen. But the days of Harry Potter is long gone, nearly 2 years now. You may have seen some of the star cast members in recent movies, but the question remains what are they up to now? What can we expect to see them in next? Search no more, here’s the list of upcoming movies for only 3 of them, Harry, Ron and Hermoine:
What’s the cast of Harry Potter up to:
Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter)
Daniels first movie after Harry Potter was the dark Thriller “The Woman In Black” where he’s a young lawyer travels to a remote village where he discovers the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals. The movie did relatively well at the box office, scraping a few dollars profit from the box office. Since then he played in the TV series “A young Doctor’s Notebook“. A drama about one of New York’s most prestigious ad agencies at the beginning of the 1960s, focusing on one of the firm’s most mysterious but extremely talented ad executives, Donald Draper. Daniel plays the young Doctor.
Here’s the upcoming movies we can expect from him:
1. Kill Your Darlings (2013)
The drama Kill Your Darlings stars Daniel Radcliffe as poet Allen Ginsberg and Jack Huston as Jack Kerouac. Based on a book by John Krokidas and Austin Dunn, the film details how a murder brought together Ginsberg, Kerouac and Burroughs. The three were just beginning their Beat journeys. Krokidas directs with a script he adapted with Dunn. After its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival it received positive reviews. It premieres 17 October. Michael C. Hall also stars in the movie. We know him as Dexter, our favorite serial killer and 1 of our 15 most likable villains.
2. The F-Word (Post-Production)
Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan star in the drama The F Word which explores whether a man and a woman could control their romantic feelings for each other and have a platonic relationship. Alex Holdridge directs with a script by Elan Mastai.
3. Horns (Post-Production)
Looks like a really interesting movie. The supernatural thriller stars Daniel Radcliffe as a suspect in the violent killing of his girlfriend. He wakes up one day to find horns growing from his head, which empowers him to get people to confess their sins as he search for the truth. Alexandre Aja directs based on a novel by Joe Hill. Apparently, part of getting into character for this film includes listening to metal and the song “Devil in Me” by 22-20s. No release date yet.
Here’s an interview with Daniel way back on October 2012:
4. Frankenstein (Pre-Production)
The classic Mary Shelley novel Frankenstein gets the sci-fi treatment. The period story of Dr. Frankenstein and his re-animated monster is told from the perspective of the assistant Igor. Paul McGuigan directs from a script by Max Landis. Landis has said that he aims for this to be “scary, sad and moving”
‘That’s when the idea came to me: instead of trying to do some high-minded ‘revisionist’ Frankenstein, why not try to stay true to a version that only lives in the zeitgeist, and has NEVER REALLY EXISTED.
‘And why not do it in an intelligent, hopefully, thoughtful way, about friendship and science, genius and madness, love and ambition, life and death?’
He added: ‘Why not use that imaginary, fairy dust framework of ‘guy with hunchbacked assistant makes monster’ and make it fun, sad, scary and hopefully, I really hope this, moving.’
Landis said the focus would be on characters and wouldn’t be a ‘bad-a** action reimagining’.
Emma Watson (Hermione Granger)
Emma Watson has two movies coming up rather soon, June 2013. It does seem like she’s been the quietest of the three.Perhaps enjoying her modelling career more than signing up the one movie after the other. Here is the movies we can expect to see her in next:
1. The Bling Ring (Wrap)
Emma’s “The Bling Ring” is about the real life story about a group of fame-obsessed teenagers who burglarized the homes of celebrities they followed on the web. Here’s the trailer. Release date is June 14th.
2. This is the End (Wrap)
This movie looks awesome! With a great list of actors, even Rihanna, this comedy from the writers of SuperBad is set to be a great laugh. Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel star in the comedy This is the End, expanded from their internet short Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse. Playing themselves, the actors are trapped after a catastrophic event. Stuck together, they keep fighting incessantly, but must also figure out a way to survive the impending doom. Rogen wrote the script with his Superbad partner Evan Goldberg. Looks like Emma is playing a small part in this.
Here’s the Trailer:
