The Circle 2017
Emma Watson starrer sci-fi thriller The Circle 2017 is set for a spring release.

Written and directed by James Ponsoldt, based on the 2013 novel of the same name by Dave Eggers. Director Ponsoldt has been a big admirer of Eggers’ work since his groundbreaking 2000 novel A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius came out. He couldn’t resist a chance of working on one of Eggers’ novels. Speaking to USA Today, Ponsoldt talked about the driving forces behind Tom Hank’s character.

“Bailey’s notion is that knowing is good, and knowing everything is better,” says Ponsoldt. “He believes all experiences should be available to everyone, not only the privileged or people who can afford to them. He’s deeply interested in technology that can make people share all human experiences with everyone. He’s a boundary pusher, even boundary destroyer.”

Bailey certainly sounds like any other leader of a giant tech company. And The Circle too seems like any other tech company grappling with the questions of how much freedom and how much privacy every individual using their products should have.

Emma Watson who starts out as a customer service rep in ‘The Circle’ and after stepping into the SeeChange world becomes somewhat of a celebrity in the hearts of millions of strangers.

“It’s a fun ride. We live through Mae. She is us. You will walk out of the theatre and have a serious look at yourself and how you’re living your life.” – Director James Ponsoldt on Emma Watson’s character.
