Actress Emma Watson has reportedly secured her first post-‘Harry Potter‘ movie role, in an upcoming movie about Marilyn Monroe.

The 20-year-old star finished work on the final installment in the wizard franchise earlier this year but has shunned Hollywood to concentrate on her university studies and launching her eco-friendly fashion line – People Tree.

She has now accepted her first movie role after the Potter franchise in new Monroe movie (titled ‘My Week With Marilyn‘), which will see Michelle Williams playing the blonde bombshell herself.

The story centres around Colin Clark, who worked as Laurence Olivier‘s assistant on 1957 movie ‘The Prince And The Showgirl‘, which he filmed with Monroe.

Watson will reportedly tackle the role of a wardrobe assistant, and will also star alongside Kenneth Branagh, Dominic Cooper and Dame Judi Dench.
