Could Emma Watson see herself returning to the Potter-verse one more time? With Warner Bros. currently adapting J.K. Rowling’s 2001 book “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” the actress wouldn’t say “no” to a return to Hogwarts.
The actress is currently taking over MTV’s Twitter account at the world premiere of “Noah,” but took time at the Los Angeles junket to weigh in on a return to her most famous role.
“I would definitely be up for a cameo!” Watson told MTV News.
That might involve a little work: The 45-page “Fantastic Beasts” was written as a kind of textbook for Hogwarts students, meaning it predates Ron, Harry and Hermoine’s adventures. So it might be a bit of a challenge to explain why our heroes are popping up in their own textbook.
However, a cameo doesn’t necessarily mean that Watson would be playing Hermoine again.
The actress interviewed J.K. Rowling — who is also writing the script for “Fantastic Beasts” — last year for Wonderland Magazine. During their chat, the author joked that she’d be happy to bring back Watson and co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint only if they were off in the background in heavy makeup.
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” will focus on the book’s fictional author, Newt Scamander, and his adventures in the Potter-verse science of “magizoology.” For the moment, the project is without a director or planned release date from Warner Bros.
Watson, meanwhile, can be seen in “Noah,” the biblical fantasy from “The Fountain” director Darren Aronofsky. That film will be in theaters March 28.
