Set pics from The Perks Of Being A Wallflower

Percy Jackson the demigod, also known as Logan Lerman, has been twittering pics from the set of his new film THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER.

The story, an adaptation of the same name, is written and directed by Stephen Chbosky who is also the original author of the book. The film sees:

Charlie, the wallflower of the title, goes through a veritable bath of bathos in his 10th grade year, 1991. The novel is formatted as a series of letters to an unnamed “friend,” the first of which reveals the suicide of Charlie’s pal Michael. Charlie’s response–valid enough–is to cry. The crying soon gets out of hand, though–in subsequent letters, his father, his aunt, his sister and his sister’s boyfriend all become lachrymose. Charlie has the usual dire adolescent problems–sex, drugs, the thuggish football team–and they perplex him in the usual teen TV ways. Into these standard teenage issues Chbosky infuses a droning insistence on Charlie’s supersensitive disposition. Charlie’s English teacher and others have a disconcerting tendency to rhapsodize over Charlie’s giftedness, which seems to consist of Charlie’s unquestioning assimilation of the teacher’s taste in books. In the end we learn the root of Charlie’s psychological problems, and we confront, with him, the coming rigors of 11th grade, ever hopeful that he’ll find a suitable girlfriend and increase his vocabulary.

So a lot are people are going to be especially curious about this flick as it is Emma Watson’s second feature outside of HARRY POTTER, her first being MY WEEK WITH MARILYN which has been labelled ‘still in post-production’. The film also stars Johnny Simmons (SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD), Nina Dobrev (THE VAMPIRE DIARIES), Dylan McDermott (DARK BLUE), Mae Whitman (SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD) and Ezra Miller (WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN).

THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER is out sometime next year but in the meantime you can follow Lerman on Twitter where you can find more stills.
