Checking up on the Hogwarts crew

Seeing Daniel Radcliffe singing and dancing so charmingly at the Oscars (hey, why wasn’t he hosting?) made me wonder what those grown-up kids from everyone’s favorite wizard franchise are up to. Turns out they all have some news:

– Radcliffe is in talks to play Igor in a new version of “Frankenstein,” written by Max Landis (“Chronicle”). He also plays Allan Ginsberg in the Beat drama “Kill Your Darlings,” out later this year.

– Emma Watson, who’ll be seen this summer in Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring,” is in talks to play the title character in a new, dark re-imagining of “Cinderella,” with Cate Blanchett as the stepmother (ooh) and Kenneth Branagh directing.

– Rupert Grint has signed to star in a new CBS comedy pilot, “Super Clyde.” His character is described by the Hollywood Reporter as: “an avid comic book reader considers himself a borderline agoraphobic with mild-to-severe anxiety issues who wishes he were a superhero himself.” No air date announced yet.

And, just so you can all go “Awwww . . . . ”
