Playtone and Likely Story announced today that Emma Watson will star alongside Tom Hanks in James Ponsoldt’s upcoming feature adaptation of Dave Eggers’ novel, The Circle.

Eggers’ novel focuses on a young woman 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.

“Emma Watson is one of my favorite actors,” says Ponsoldt, “and her incredible talent, sensitivity, and deep intelligence will bring an electric energy to ‘The Circle.’”
