First look at Emma Watson in The Circle Set Photos
Production has begun in Fillmore, California on James Ponsoldt’s upcoming feature adaptation of Dave Eggers’ novel The Circle, starring Tom Hanks, John Boyega, Karen Gillan, Patton Oswalt and Bill Paxton, and we have your first look at co-star Emma Watson on set. You can check out The Circle set photos in the gallery below!
Eggers’ novel focuses on a young woman (Watson) who is hired for a big job in an Internet monopoly called the Circle, which links users’ personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency.
The novel turns into a contemporary thriller about the perils of life in a digital age where personal data is collected, sifted and monetized and used for surveillance, rendering privacy obsolete.
The feature adaptation has been written and will be directed by Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now). The Circle is being produced by Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman for Playtone, Anthony Bregman for Likely Story, and Ponsoldt.
