Emma Watson has reportedly been named a frontrunner to play Taylor Lautner's love interest, Claudia, in his new fantasy movie, Incarceron.


The news comes as a surprise since Emma has said after finishing her run as Hermione in Harry Potter, she wants acting to take a back seat to her studies at Brown University.

Incarceron is an adaptation of Catherine Fischer's young-adult sci-fi novel about a young man named Finn (Taylor) who's locked away in an isolated prison called Incarceron. Claudia is the prison warden's daughter who is likewise trapped, but in the 17th century world of Realm.

Along with Emma, Oscar contender Winter's Bone's Jennifer Lawrence and Gossip Girl's Blake Lively are also reportedly in the running to play Claudia.

Do you think Emma and Taylor would make a good on-screen couple? Who do you think should play Claudia?
