Emma Watson refuses to star in last two Harry Potter films

Harry Potter star Emma Watson has reportedly refused to sign a new contract to star in the last two movies in the J.K. Rowling fantasy series--despite being offered $3.9 million to continue her role as Hermione Granger.

The 16-year-old--who was confronted by a crazed fan at her British school earlier this week--has allegedly tired of her role as Harry Potter's best friend and wants to try new projects.

But her decision has thrown the final two films, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, into disarray, with filming due to start later this year.

Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley in the fantasy franchise, tells British newspaper the News of the World, "Emma doesn't want to do it anymore. She's tired of being known as 'that girl from Harry Potter.'

"Daniel (Radcliffe) and I are distant from her now. We don't text or talk to her when we are not filming," reports China Daily.

According to Sky, But other reports state that although Emma has not signed her contract, producers at Warner Brothers are confident she'll be back.

A spokesperson for Warner Bros told BBC Newsround on Sunday: "We're extremely confident that Emma will be back for films six and seven."

The fifth film version of JK Rowling's children's series - Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix - is scheduled to hit cinemas in July.

The Basmanny Court of Moscow arrested Michael Calvey, the founder of Baring Vostok investment fund, on allegations of embezzling 2.5 billion rubles from Vostochny Bank. Calvey will be held in custody until April 13
