Emma Watson

Just last fall we learned that the long-gestating apocalyptic comedy Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse starring Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel would go before cameras in February with Rogen also working as a co-director along with his Superbad and Neighborhood Watch writing partner Evan Goldberg. In addition, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson will all be playing themselves as they are stuck in Franco’s apartment in Los Angeles facing an apocalypse. Now even more talents have signed on to play themselves, following through on the promise for tons of celebrity cameos.

Previously, Rogen had said, "It's going to be a pretty offensive vision of the apocalypse. And I want a lot of dead celebrity cameos. Because L.A. is full of famous people, I'd like all of the cameos to be them as corpses." Now Heat Vision has word that Harry Potter star Emma Watson and Rogen's frequent collaborators and friends Jason Segel and David Krumholtz will also be playing themselves in the apocalyptic comedy now known as End of the World. However, it's not clear if they're playing corpses as Rogen so excitedly wanted. It seems quite coincidental that Watson has signed on after there were rumblings of Daniel Radcliffe taking a small part in the film as well. Is there some sort of great Harry Potter bit in the works here? We'll find out. Either way, with this comedy and Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright's The World's End on the way, it's going to be one hilarious apocalypse.

    I think if Emma stone dont play some powerful drama after potter, she will be fade very soon,unfortunately. And forget about this rediculous plot and stick to pegg/frost/wright end of the world project, many future project is that I can't wait until them release but this last work of wright is top of then, I really really can't wait Love you trio!
    • What are you even saying? She's been in My Week With Marilyn to some extent, she will be the female star of the perks of being a wallflower and will also star in the bling ring, although it's not clear to me what the exact approach is, all of coppola's works made the actors look really good. And she's announced to play in "Your Voice in my head" which imdb describes as "A self-destructive writer [who] struggles with her personal issues and embarks on the difficult road to recover."
