Emma Watson hasn't rushed into making any really big moves post-"Harry Potter," instead seemingly careful in considering each choice. Indeed, she's mostly decided to go in for supporting roles or for very tiny turns in stuff varying from "My Week With Marilyn" or even "The Bling Ring," to a great performance in "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower" and a memorable cameo in "This Is The End." This spring she'll have a bigger part in the water-ready "Noah," and it seems Watson is sticking with auteurs for the moment.

Emma Watson hasn't rushed into making any really big moves post-"Harry Potter," instead seemingly careful in considering each choice. Indeed, she's mostly decided to go in for supporting roles or for very tiny turns in stuff varying from "My Week With Marilyn" or even "The Bling Ring," to a great performance in "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower" and a memorable cameo in "This Is The End." This spring she'll have a bigger part in the water-ready "Noah," and it seems Watson is sticking with auteurs for the moment.

Having already notched Sofia Coppola and Darren Aronofsky on her belt, Watson has now joined "The Others" and "Open Your Eyes" director Alejandro Amenábar's upcoming thriller "Regression." All we know so far is that she'll co-star with Ethan Hawke, and The Weinstein Company's offshoot label Dimension will release it in 2015, which suggests something strictly in the genre vein. Indeed the project has been previously described as dealing with  "our deepest primal fears," so we'll see what it's all about.

Production on the film will begin this spring, and hopefully more details will arrive soon.
