I would take this news with a colossal grain of salt. This article and others like it have been circulating on the IMDB.com HP boards for awhile now, and many of the posters there have debunked it because the original article came from a tabloid. There is an article here and one here on the Leaky Cauldron that refute the claim she is not returning. Watson just hasn't signed her new contract yet (technically the only one who has signed on is Daniel Radcliffe).

Have to say, that's a relief. I've enjoyed Emma Watson's portrayal of Hermione from the word go, and I'd rather think she would finish the project out than want to move on early. I understand that desire, as we discussed in another un-mentionable thread, but doesn't change my opinion.

So, big "shew" on that one!

From what I've heard from Brit friends, take just about anything you read (as far as entertainment rumors) in the Guardian with a huge grain of salt. LOL

They did report this on CNN in the last couple days, the rumor she wouldn't sign on and the studio's insistance that she eventually would;

May I say, having some rumor or other 'news' item about the HP franchise popping up is a good marketing strategy.

We've recently heard that the male lead did sign on; the news about the stage role he accepted; the length of the last book; the date of release of the last book; the number of deaths in the last book; that the last book would be printed on re-cycled paper, yada yada yada.

HP makes the news, fans are kept strung along. "Truth" isn't the issue. Keeping up interest and anticipation is the issue.

A new article from http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org has confirmed today that Daniel Radcliffe (whom we already knew about), Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson have all signed on for the final two films in the WB adaptation of the HP films!

Emma Watson had this to say: "I could never let Hermione go--she is my hero! I love her too much and love what playing her has meant to me. I am excited and honoured to be finishing what I started and playing her in all seven films."

Guess that'll put the "Emma isn't coming back" rumors to rest.

I think we all need to really question the Guardian from now on. Smile
