With Friday's release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the franchise that made Emma Watson's career will come to a close. But that doesn't mean she's slowing down — according to The Hollywood Reporter, the 21-year-old actress has at least two movies in the works.

The first is My Week with Marilyn, the film adaptation of multiple books by and personal accounts of filmmaker Colin Clark regarding his relationship with Marilyn Monroe (Clark served as assistant director on The Prince and the Showgirl). In a small role, Watson will join an ensemble cast that features Michelle Williams as Monroe, as well as the likes of Julia Ormond, Kenneth Branagh and Judi Dench. Simon Curtis (The Practice, David Copperfield) is directing the film, which is set to land in theaters Nov. 4.
