Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, Karen Gillan and John Boyega - four incredible actors and the idea of all of them in a film together sounds absolutely perfect already.

Brace yourselves for another book to screen adaptation for the science-fiction novel The Circle by American author Dave Eggers. The film depicts the intense story of A young woman (Emma Watson) who lands a job at a powerful tech company called the Circle, which links its users personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system designed to render privacy obsolete.

Watson is set to play the lead Mia, with Hanks playing Bailey and also producing the movie, Boyega plays the mysterious Kaiden who seeks the help of our heroine Mia and Gillan plays Annie and Patton Oswalt Tom Stenton. James Ponsoldt takes on the role of screenwriter and director.

Now there is no release date confirmed, but the film will definitely be released in 2016 - that gives you guys enough time to read the book! I know I definitely will be.

I will definitely be posting a review on here once I've read it.

So, as there's no trailer yet, I'd just like to say that two of this film's stars are involved in two major films this year - Emma Watson is staring in the psychological thriller "Regression" and John Boyega is staring in the highly anticipated "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens".

As well as having impressive projects in the works, Watson and Boyega seem to have developed a nice friendship as they confirm they enjoyed working together in "The Circle" and would like to work together again through their conversation on Twitter - some are seeing this as flirting, but I thought it was more playful banter (Shocker: a guy and girl can be just good friends - I'll admit this was pretty sweet though)

The cast seem to have enjoyed working together immensely from similar tweets with Karen Gillan when she wrapped up on filming her scenes, so I'm looking forward to seeing great chemistry from the actors in this film.

This will definitely be a film I'll be keeping you guys updated on, my next post on the circle will be once I've read the novel.

So have you guys read the book? Are you excited to see Emma and John on screen together or in their individual projects? How about Tom Hanks leading this impressive cast?
