Just because Sam and Charlie remove their shirts in the book doesn't mean that Emma will show her chest. Look at DH... Emma and Dan kiss shirtless but they only show Emma's back. The same can be done in Perks. Nudity isn't required for intimate scenes. The film will probably get an R rating due to the Drugs but still if filmed in a specific manner it could achieve a PG-13 rating instead of R. Though considering the context of the film with sexual abuse, drug abuse, and hints of suicide, I believe it'll be R. Audiances are intelligent enough to know what's going on without a complete visual. ;) Also Charlie only hears Sam having sex with her boyfriend he doesn't actually see them. A few places are now saying Emma is confirmed. Hope so. Fingers crossed. Scenes can be shot now since Dh is through and then they can finish up in May when Emma's off for summer break. Anything's possible.

If she is, then I believe it would only be a small part (like in My Week with Marilyn). According to IMdB, The main cast members have been chosen (Brad, Sam, Bill, Bill (not a mistake), and Katie Stevens. It also states that it will be released in 2011 (November 4, 2011 USA). However, according to the same page it is still in Pre-Production (the movie hasn't begun filming). So, if she is in it, then it will be a small role.

IMDB isn't the most credible source. There hasn't been an official announcement and there isn't any source linking any of those people to this movie, so it's probably a fake cast that someone made up for whatever reason. While the other sources that claim Emma is going to play Sam in the movie aren't official confirmations, they are a bit more reliable than a list with no evidence to support it.

I see what you mean. IMdB is just a preference of mine. I don't know why, but I always go there before anywhere else.

Yes, she does't want people forget her as Hermione but it doesn't mean she won't try other characters and be regarded as a real actress other than the typecasted one-character-in-life-sensation. Otherwise she won't consider a role like Sam who's very different from Hermione.

You can keep your old screen images forever in history but at the same time, just keeping on and improving as a broading actress in future. It's not conflicted at all.

Of course that doesn't mean I don't agree that the nude scene can be made tastefully or even not shown directly. But if the director wants it, I doubt Emma would refuse it just because she wants to be stick in one role forever.

Production Weekly is far far far more reliable than IMDB which anyone who has a IMDBPRO account can edit without any authentication.

The 'cast' on IMDB is totally a joke. Like, Bill, a high school teacher who's from Brown graduate school will be played by an actor who was born in 1992. Sorry, it's just a ridiculous joke.

Emma is back in the US.We don't know why yet, whether it's just for vacation or because she is working on something. Some sources claimed that Perks was supposed to begin filming this month, so maybe that's why she's back so soon. We'll have to wait and see.

Did you guys see this !
From Snitchseeker: Emma Watson @EmWatson 's reps have asked us to assure fans that she is "constantly reading scripts;" there are "no projects in the pipeline at present."

Does this confirm that she wont be in Perks? :(
there's nothing I N T E R E S T I N G about being P-E-R-F-E-C-T.

If that's the case why did they want until NOW to say Emma had no projects when we've been trying to figure this out for months? I would assume it was to debunk the other role rumor but I wonder why they didn't do it for Perks earlier?

Well, if's she's not in this movie then that sucks. At least My Week With Marilyn worked out, but I was hoping for another major role.

IA with KS987. I think her reps words refer to Taylor's rumor more than the Perks one.

I would love to see Emma in some artistic indie film like this one but if they can't decide filming date yet, I can understand why Emma drop it.

I don't think it was a question of dropping it. I'm not sure it was ever going to happen. I doubt it ever got beyond the discussion stage.

And to be perfectly honest. Emma's American accent isn't good enough yet.
Mankind can be counted on to assert, with vigor, it's God given right to be stupid.

That is a good point. I would much rather Emma wait and get the accent 100% right before she plays a American character instead of rushing into a film before her accent is perfect as a actors reputation can easily be damaged by a dodgy fake accent.

Emma's official site confirmed she was at least in talks for Perks last year. And she said she was hoping to film something during the winter holidays when discussing new projects that she couldn't talk about(MWWM was filmed in November), so it seems like she was strongly considering it. It probably wasn't the DH reshoots that hurt her chances since they finished before Christmas. Maybe she just wanted a break or there just wasn't enough time for her to film her scenes before she went back to Brown again. Though with the filming not even happening now and the other rumored date being May apparently, which around the time Emma wraps up her second year at Brown, it seems strange since she would have been able to film it then. Deathly Hallows 2 doesn't come out until July and she could have squeezed in promotion with no real issue, especially considering what she had to juggled around in November. Though once again it may just be that she wants a break after DH2 comes out and to have the rest of the summer off.

Considering she is studying full time it isn't at all surprising that she doesn't want to work on her holidays. How many of us would be happy to finish a long term at school only to have to go to a different job.

Emma said in several interviews during the latest DH1 promotion that she's definitely finding something for her holidays to do, maybe some good supporting movie roles, maybe stage plays. So it's obvious that she DOES want to do something in summer or winter holidays. If the Perks doesn't take off in May, I don't think it's because Emma needs break. It's more of the production problems.

Here is a article about Perks being bought by Summit Entertainment.

http://nymag.com/dai...sons_perks.html

It seems to assume that Emma is still involved in the project but it also says that shooting should begin in June and as far as i know Emma will be very busy with promoting Deathly Hallows Part 2 in June this year.

I saw this article earlier. The media sometimes continue to link Emma to projects that she or her reps denied.

I believe Deathly Hallows Part 2 comes out in July, although she may take that time to do photoshoots and other promotion. I don't think it would be an issue with Emma though, as she managed to juggle DH1 promotion with both the filming of My Week With Marilyn and Brown. The one thing that hurts this rumor is the word from Emma's reps that she has no project in the pipeline.

I was thinking the same thing. It is quite possible that the makers of "Perks" continue to allow people to think Emma is involved in the project because it gives them a lot of free publicity that they would not have gotten if Emma wasn't linked to the project.

If it gives them more publicity they are not going to deny the rumors until they really have to.

The article said 'a formal announcement from the studio could come as early as this week or next'. So we could find if it's true soon.

The DH2 promo will begin for Emma in spring break if I'm not mistaken. She began DH1 promo during her summer break last year so this time will be the same IMO. In July, the only thing that she needs to do is attending the premieres and TV shows. As she had done for HBP & DH1, I think it will only take her two weeks at best. They could film scenes without Sam at that time and continue film Sam scenes when Emma returns so it won't conflict filming at all.

As for the rep words, you know EWO still didn't put MWWM as her project so I won't take it very seriously either LOL. If Emma won't take this project, they will clearly deny it like the Dark Arc rumor since it's all over the internet for months. And John Malkovich and Stephen Chbosky are respectable people, they need publicity of course but I don't think they will take it too far. By saying that, I believe Chbosky won't lie intentionally when he confirmed Emma would be in this film.

I'm waiting the Summit announcement. If it's released officially then everything is done like MWWM.
