EXCLUSIVE: After Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe turned in great numbers on the CBS Films-distributed The Woman In Black, and Emma Watson readies for a re-team with David Yates in Your Voice Inside My Head for Warner Bros, what has become of that bratty Draco Malfoy, who tormented the hell out of Potter and his wand-waving mates over eight films? Tom Felton is in negotiations to star opposite Elizabeth Olsen and Glenn Close in Therese Raquin. Written and set to be helmed by acclaimed theater director Charlie Stratton, the film’s being produced by William Horberg and Mickey Liddell. Close is attached for the role of Madame Raquin, and Olsen for Therese, who, with her lover Laurent, murder her husband (Felton), a sick boy that Madame Raquin forced Therese to marry. After Therese later marries her true love, the couple is haunted by the ghost of the dead husband and it poisons their love into all-consuming hatred.
Felton, who last year finished off the Harry Potter series and had a supporting role in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, just finished production on the Tandem/Scott Free Productions TV mini Labyrinth as well as From The Rough, and The Apparition at Warner Bros. WME reps him along with Untitled and UK-based Troika.
