First Look at THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER Starring Logan Lerman and Emma Watson

     October 13, 2011


Summit Entertainment has released the first images from The Perks of Being a Wallflower.  Stephen Chbosky directs the adaptation of his own novel, which centers on “15-year-old Charlie (Lerman), an endearing and naive outsider, coping with first love (Emma Watson), the suicide of his best friend, and his own mental illness while struggling to find a group of people with whom he belongs.”  The novel has a devoted following since it was released in 1999, but it sounds like it’s in the vein of The Art of Getting By, Restless, and every other whiny teenage guy coming-of-age story that I want to punch into oblivion.  But I’m curious to see how the lead Harry Potter actors will perform beyond the characters they defined, and perhaps have defined them.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film also stars Mae Whitman (Parenthood), Johnny Simmons (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World), Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries), Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk about Kevin), and Dylan McDermott.  No release date has been announced, but it’s likely we’ll see The Perks of Being a Wallflower in 2012.

      She’s beautiful. I’d say I’d be all over her if we ever met in real life, but truthfully, I’d be lucky to get two words out without falling over myself.

    Emma Watson is the only Harry Potter actor, who is the other one you’re talking about?

    • RAR

      He means the Harry Potter actors in general, not necessarily in this movie.

  • Romsy

    Awesome job of dumping on a book you’ve never read Matt. You’re a consummate professional, as always.

    naturally like your web-site however you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very troublesome to inform the reality on the other hand I’ll certainly come back again.
