Emma Watson's post-Potter career is coming along nicely, with the starlet adding another flick, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, to her bulging schedule.

Rather than take some time out following the completion of the magical franchise, Watson has thrown herself into shaping out a movie career beyond Hermione Granger, despite still being a student at Brown University in the States.

Between studies, she's already filmed Marilyn Monroe flick, My Week with Marilyn, alongside Oscar-nominee Michelle Williams, which is tipped to be released later this year.

As for her latest project, Watson has been connected to The Perks of Being a Wallflower since last summer, but the teen flick has just gained funding from Summit Entertainment, which famously owns the Twilight franchise. 

Emma has baggged the role of Sam in the coming-of-age story, which is set to be directed by the novel's author, Stephen Chbosky. But don't think this is just Harry Potter without the magic - the hard-hitting tale hits on themes such as teenage sexuality, abuse, and the struggles of adolescence.

Sounds cheery!
