Amid this, making news is Hermione Granger.
If you have been close to the vineyard, the grapevine recently had that WarnerMedia is planning to give the character’s from the wizarding world their separate spin-offs. One of the most prominent and exciting characters to get a full-length film designated to her is Hermione Granger played by Emma Watson. But what if she doesn’t come on board. Read on to know everything about this update of the day.
For the unversed, Emma Watson, who actually plays Hermione Granger in Harry Potter, recently made news when it was said she has taken retirement from acting. In this case what if the actor denies reprising Hermione for the special spin-off. As per a report in We Got This Covered, the studio is also prepared for that situation too. The intel who has got his hand on a big gossip says the bosses will even consider recasting Hermione if Watson disagrees to come on board.
It is not like they want to take the recasting route in a hurry. The intel also adds that the studio will try to convince the actor to reprise the mantle even if it makes them pay some more than planned. But even if Emma Watson doesn’t agree to walk the Harry Potter universe lanes again, they will have to recast.
It is also a risky part to replace Emma Watson in a Harry Potter film for the studio as the actor has made a massive fanbase for her nerdy character. What do you have to say about the same? Let us know in the comment section below.
