Question: Could Emma Watson be any more perfect? Answer: Nope! The Harry Potter star captivated audiences with her charm in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, will embrace her inner valley girl in the highly anticipated movie The Bling Ring, and can now add the title of producer to her perfectly polished resume.

Watson is teaming up with her Harry Potter producer David Heyman to deliver a new franchise, Queen of the Tearling. And the good news just keeps on coming because Watson is also set to star in the fantasy project, which is being compared to the all-encompassing series Game of Thrones. According to Variety, Warner Bros. has already secured the rights to the books that the movie(s) will be based upon, but as of now they are still searching for a director and screenwriter.

Queen of the Tearling is the first book in Erika Johansen's fantasy trilogy that takes place in an alternate 2014, three centuries after an environmental catastrophe. Watson will star as 19-year-old princess Kelsea Glynn, who must defeat the Red Queen to reclaim her deceased mother's throne in the kingdom of the Tearling. It sounds like an amazing mix of Game of Thrones and Alice in Wonderland. Can we reserve our tickets now?
