Emma Watson for While We're Young

Emma Watson has been signed up to star in the film adaptation of While We're Young.

The Harry Potter star will be reteaming with director Stephen Chbosky who she worked with on previous novel adaptation The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, according to Deadline.

Based on the Adena Halpern novel 29, While We're Young, the film follows a 75-year-old woman who feels she has more in common with her 29-year-old granddaughter than anyone her own age and is granted the birthday wish of being 29 again.

The grandmother and granddaughter, now the same age, set out on an adventure together and the film tells the story of three generations of women, including the older character's daughter who is in her 50s.

Emma recently starred in real-life tale The Bling Ring and can be seen next year in biblical film Noah with Russell Crowe and drama Your Voice In My Head.
