We've been wondering who the next "Harry Potter" alum would be to shoot out of the gates after Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson.

It looks like Tom Felton, who got his big break playing the terminally creepy Draco Malfoy, will be next in line, or it could be if he signs up for a leading role in "'Therese Raquin."

If he does join the production, Felton will be taking a goth-y period piece tip from his former costar Radcliffe, whose new movie "The Woman in Black" is doing well at the box office. "Raquin," which is based on the novel by Emile Zola, is a drama set in the 19th century about love, murder and ghosts, all things that Felton would feel right at home with after his years at Slytherin. Elizabeth Olsen and Glenn Close were first linked to the project last November.

Therese (Olsen) is rudely forced to marry her first cousin Camille by her wretched aunt (Close sans "Albert Nobbs" garb). Therese and her lover Laurent murder Camille, but Camille gets the last laugh because he haunts them from the grave until they hate each other. Felton is in talks to play Camille, naturally, although there's no word on whether or not he'll be sporting his bleach blonde Draco 'do for the part.

Oddly enough, this isn't the first "HP" alum Elizabeth Olsen is planning to work with. She signed on in January for a role in "Kill Your Darlings," which will star Radcliffe as Allen Ginsberg. As for Felton, we last saw him in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," where he was kind of being a jerk to the apes. Given his track record, we can only imagine what awesomely terrible things he will do to terrorize Therese and Laurent from beyond.
