Emma Watson - Emma Watson to star in fantasy franchise

Emma Watson is to star in a new fantasy franchise.

The 'Bling Ring' actress is set to reunite with 'Harry Potter' producer David Heyman and Warner Bros., the studio behind the lauded wizarding movies, for a new series of films which have been described as a female version of fantasy franchise 'Game of Thrones', reports Variety.

The movies will be based on Erika Johansen's upcoming book trilogy, 'Queen of the Tearling', about 19-year-old princess Kelsea Glynn - to be played by Watson - who attempts to reclaim her late mother's kingdom, the Tearling, from the clutches of an evil witch called the Red Queen.

The first of the fantasy novels, which are set three centuries after an environmental catastrophe, will be published in 2014.

The movie studio has acquired the movie rights to the book series, however, the film adaptation is still in development as no writer or director is attached to the project.

Heyman will produce through his Heyday Films production company.

Watson is currently earning rave reviews for her role as a celebrity-obsessed teen thief in Sofia Coppola's 'The Bling Ring' and will next be seen playing herself in comedy 'This is the End'.
