Legend of Barney Thomson (Emma Watson) 1

Emma Thompson's name conjures images of poise and grace, bringing to mind her sincere and moving performances in films like "Sense and Sensibility" and "The Remains of the Day."  But, of course, the actress seems just as comfortable whipping off her spike heels at the Golden Globes or donning a fake nose and a snaggletooth for a role like "Nanny McPhee."

Thompson is currently at work on "The Legend of Barney Thomson," actor Robert Carlyle's directorial debut based on a novel by Douglas Lindsay about a barber in Glasgow who lives a dull, pointless life until he crosses paths with an unstable serial killer.

Carlyle plays the titular character, with Emma Thompson playing his dowdy mother.  (Yet another actress plays far above her actual age.) Based on these on-set photos, all we can say is that it looks like she's going to knock this one out of the park.  Check out the rest of them, after the jump.
