(ANI): Actress Scarlet Johansson was replaced by Harry Potter star
Emma Watson in a new period romance, because the makers think that
the former is 'too old' for the role. The 23-year-old actress has
been deemed "too old" to star in the film Napoleon and Betsy and
has been replaced by Watson, known for her role of Hermoine in the
Harry Potter series, reports the New York Daily News.
Watson would be seen in the role of Betsy Balcombe, a young
woman trapped on an isolated British island who falls in love with
the imprisoned Napoleon. However, the Horse Whisperer star is still
involved in the project as a co-producer. The film is written and
directed by British filmmaker, Benjamin Ross.
