Perks of Being a Wallflower

Stephen Chbosky's coming-of-age drama The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a beloved book and a must-read for any teenager as they discover their own personal identity. As we learned in May of 2010, the author would write and direct the big screen adaptation of the book himself with Harry Potter actress Emma Watson and Percy Jackson actor Logan Lerman leading the film. Published in 1999, the story follows a shy and unpopular teenager who describes his life by writing a series of letters to an anonymous person and explores the awkward times of adolescence and now we have our first look at the film below!

Here are the first photos from the set of Stephen Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower:

Having read this phenomenal book back in high school, I can tell you that there's really nothing dangerous about this book, but apparently it has appeared on the American Library Associations list of most challenged books to keep away from schools and kids because of its treatment of drugs, homosexuality, sex and suicide. No doubt the book is for mature teens, but it's a genuine look into adolescence with all the emotional ups and downs every single teen will experience in their life. This will undoubtedly test both Watson and Lerman's talent, but I like what I'm seeing from these photos. Hopefully they have the chops to bring these characters to life on the big screen. Stay tuned to find out when the film will hit theaters.

    This should be quite interesting, Watson showed massive range in DH and hopefully her career will take off and we will see powerhouse performances from her.

    Such a good book, really looking forward to this
  • i have full confidence in Emma Watson's "acting chops" from her Harry Potter films, and Logan Lerman from his days on TV's "Jack & Bobby."

    The xox in the picture frame is a nice touch.

    I believe Emma can pull of this role. I admire her so much, I won't miss a film she will be in. I can't wait to see this!
