Emma Watson is to star in a Gothic musical adaptation of classic fairytale 'Cinderella', written by rocker Marilyn Manson
Emma Watson is teaming up with Marilyn Manson for a new film.
The 'Harry Potter' actress is reportedly set to star as a princess in a gothic musical reworking of 'Cinderella', which is currently being written by the outrageous rocker.
A source said: "Emma really wants to show there's more to her talents than playing Hermione Granger. She's saw how Daniel Radcliffe managed to branch out into something completely different when he starred in 'Equus' and thinks this could do the same for her - after all, who'd guess she's want to team with Marilyn Manson, of all people."
Emma recently revealed she has no plans to take on any more acting work unless she feels as strongly about the project as she did with 'Harry Potter'.
She said: "I don't have a burning passion for acting.
"Until something comes along that I feel as strongly about as I did Hermione - like, I felt that it was life or death - I don't want to act again."
The 19-year-old star is planning to move to America to attend university later this year but doesn't believe it will have any impact on her work, if the right role comes along.
She explained: "Jodie Foster did it, Natalie Portman did it. I think it's entirely possible to juggle university with filming.
"I actually think going to university will make me a better actress. The experience of living like that, working to deadlines, living with other students. It's all the things I want."
