Emma Watson Signs With CAA

She previously was with WME.
Emma Watson has left WME for CAA, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

She embodies Belle in Disney’s much-anticipated live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, out next March. A month later, she will star opposite Tom Hanks and John Boyega in James Ponsoldt’s adaptation of Dave Eggers’ novel The Circle. Her other film credits include The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bling Ring and Noah.

Since becoming world-famous as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise, Watson has become a female empowerment icon in her own right, serving as a global goodwill ambassador for UN Women. She was named one of Time magazine’s 2015 Time 100 most influential people list on the strength of her HeForShe campaign, and in January she started a monthly feminist book club called Our Shared Shelf.

Watson continues to be managed by Untitled Entertainment.

Directed by Oscar® winner Bill Condon from a screenplay by TBD based on the 1991 animated film, the film is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards® (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the 1991 animated film, providing the score, which will include new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice. “Beauty and the Beast” will be released in U.S. theaters on March 17, 2017.
