The story revolves around young lawyer Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe), who stumbles upon a dark and mysterious phenomenon gripping a small town in England. In celebration of the release of “Black,” Radcliffe’s first big post-“Harry Potter” movie (in which there isn’t a wand or wizard in sight), we thought it would be a good time to check in with the rest of the Hogwarts alumni and look at their upcoming projects. Daniel Radcliffe

 Radcliffe’s next film role is poet Allen Ginsberg in the independent film “Kill Your Darlings,” which is about how Ginsberg and fellow Beat Generation icons Jack Kerouac and Lucien Carr first met. The likable superstar told MTV News recently that he hopes his 2012 is all “about film, film, film,” with a possible return to the stage in a couple years. Emma Watson

 Watson has been a busy bee since wrapping “Deathly Hallows, Part 2.” She can currently be seen in awards-season darling “My Week With Marilyn.” Next up is her first turn as an American in the anticipated big-screen adaptation of Stephen Chbosky’s coming-of-age novel “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.” Earlier this week it was reported that Watson is in talks to team up with “Potter” director David Yates for a new drama called “Your Voice in My Head.” 

 Rupert Grint

 Grint has managed to appear in a few films throughout his years with “Potter,” but his first role since the series ended is in the anti-war film “Into the White,” formerly known as “Comrade.” After that you can listen for his voice in the animated “Postman Pat: The Movie – You Know You’re the One.” Then he’s hoping to star in the biopic “Eddie the Eagle,” based on Eddie Edwards, the first British native to represent the country in Olympic ski jumping. Tom Felton

 Following his role in the 2011 blockbuster “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” two-time Best Villain winner Tom Felton will appear in the ghostly thriller “Apparition,” opposite Ashley Greene and “Captain America” star Sebastian Stan. Felton just wrapped shooting on upcoming TV series “Labryinth,” and he also has golf drama “From the Rough” with Taraji P. Henson in the can awaiting a release date. Bonnie Wright

 The lovely titian-tressed actress recently wrapped production on “The Philosophers,” a fantasy thriller set at an international school in Jakarta that features fellow “Potter” castmate Freddie Stroma. Wright will follow up “Philosophers” with a role in the “Sweat – London” segment of the ensemble piece “Geography of the Hapless Heart.”

 Matthew Lewis

 When he’s not posing for smoldery photos, the suddenly grown-up and stylish Lewis is busy making careful choices for his post-“Potter” career. He just wrapped filming on a major BBC TV project called “The Syndicate” and will start work on a new film, “Wasteland,” from writer-director Rowan Athale, at the end of February. 

 Freddie Stroma

 Although he didn’t have tons of screen time as wannabe Lothario Cormac McLaggen, Stroma has a lot cooking career-wise. In case you missed him in the made-for-TV movie “A Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song” opposite Lucy Hale, don’t fret: The onetime aspiring neurosurgeon will be on the big screen in “Pitch Perfect,” the Elizabeth Banks-produced comedy about college a cappella competitions, and he’ll follow that with “The Philosophers.” Check out everything we’ve got on “The Woman in Black.” For young Hollywood news, fashion and “Twilight” updates around the clock, visit
