Emma Watson and Logan Lerman Cast in Stephen Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower Adaptation
Summit Entertainment recently sent out a press release revealing that the film adaptation of Stephen Chbosky’s young-adult novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower is still happening, and that Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame and The Lightning Thief’s Logan Lerman will still star. The major news is that Chbosky will compose the screenplay and direct the film.
Chbosky has dabbled in other film projects, having penned the script to Rent, but this is the first time he’ll write and direct an adaptation of his own work—one of the few to get that opportunity.
Logan Lerman will play Charlie, a teenager who begins associating with older outcasts that include Samantha, played by Emma Watson, who begins shooting this summer.
