Hermione has officially left the building. Former "Harry Potter" star Emma Watson, who appeared in two of the summer's very best films -- "The Bling Ring" and "This is the End" -- as two very different characters, is continuing to make bold career choices. The 23-year-old actress is next set to star in "Your Voice in My Head," the movie adaptation of Emma Forrest's bestselling memoir about her struggles with bipolar disorder.

What's interesting about the project is that Watson was attached once before: Earlier this year, when it was going to be helmed by four-time "Harry Potter" director David Yates, she was on board. But when Yates dropped out, so did Watson, and Emily Blunt was cast in her place. Blunt later split with the production as well, leaving Watson able to return, this time under the direction of "Tanner Hall" filmmaker Francesca Gregorini.

The film's various international rights are being shopped at Toronto, but considering Watson's ascending star power and the tantalizing nature of Forrest's screenplay (she adapted her own book), it should be a pretty easy sell.

Watson's next movie, the Biblical epic "Noah," sails into theaters March 28, 2014.
