According to Just Jared, Harry Potter star, Emma Watson is in the top contender to play Claudia in Fox’s adaptation of Catherine Fisher’s young-adult fantasy novel Incarceron. Twilight star, Taylor Lautner has already signed on to play the lead role of the seventeen-year-old Finn. Lautner’s character is in a prison so vast that it contains corridors and forests and even though the prison has been sealed for centuries only one man, half real, half legend, has ever escaped. So… Mixing stars from Harry Potter and Twilight… Yeah, I think that’ll create some buzz.
A director has not yet been named to helm the project, but according to Just Jared, John Palermo (X-Men: The Last Stand, Wolverine) is producing. And Adam Cooper and Bill Collage (Accepted) will write the screenplay. Mixing Stars from Harry Potter and Twilight… Yeah, I think that will create some buzz.
Incarceron was released in the U.S. last year and made it to the New York Times children’s bestseller list. The second novel in the series, Sapphique, was release tuesday. It looks like Watson may have jumped into another successful series. Good for her!
Hit the Jump for the Synopsis.
Here’s the official Synopsis from Catherine Fisher’s website
Imagine a living prison so vast that it contains corridors and forests, cities and seas. Imagine a prisoner with no memory, who is sure he came from Outside, even though the prison has been sealed for centuries and only one man, half real, half legend, has ever escaped. Imagine a girl in a manor house in a society where time has been forbidden, where everyone is held in a seventeenth century world run by computers, doomed to an arranged marriage that appals her, tangled in an assassination plot she both dreads and desires. One inside, one outside. But both imprisoned. Imagine a war that has hollowed the moon, seven skullrings that contain souls, a flying ship and a wall at the world’s end. Imagine the unimaginable. Imagine Incarceron.
