Even though it’s no where near time for Halloween, I’m always in the mood for a scary movie. With Daniel Radcliffe’s The Woman in Black in theaters now, it looks like another Potter alum may enter the realm of the undead. According to Bloody Disgusting, the Weinstein Company is trying to cast Emma Watson for the lead role of “Justine” in the long awaited slasher film Kristy. Here’s what they had to say:
We’ve been tipped that Gary Fleder (Kiss the Girls, Don’t Say a Word) is now in the director’s chair with a shoot date slated for this coming April. Penned by Tony Jaswinski, the slasher is being pegged as The Strangers on a college campus. It follows a coed who stays in her dorm during Thanksgiving and is being terrorized by four masked assailants on the empty campus - the killers are up against far more than they bargained for. David Kirschner is producing with his David Kirschner Productions.
Nothing yet has been set in stone for Watson, although I think she could do some real damage in a horror flick. Seeing as how she attends Oxford University right now, she has amazing knowledge of college campus life. Let’s hope that Watson has a love of horror like I do.
