Emma Watson looks set to bury her Harry Potter alter-ego Hermione Granger with her next role.
The Harry Potter star has reportedly signed up to star in a Hollywood adaptation of Stephen Chbosky's novel, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.
Emma, who is currently studying at Brown University in the States, would play the subject of a teenage boy's affections in the big-screen adaptation, said the Daily Telegraph.
"I am still ambitious as an actress, definitely. I don't think I have really shown what I can do just yet, and there's definitely more to see," she has said previously.
The book has already been criticised in the US for its treatment of sex, drugs and suicide, prompting record complaints to the American Library Association.
