"A Look Back” is a series of posts we here at Caughtonset.com feature weekly. It’s as simple as the title makes it sound. Each Friday we will take “A Look Back” to the set of a newly released film. Look at pictures from the set today, then watch the movie tonight.
This week we take A Look Back at the new release The Perks of Being A Wallflower starring Emma Watson. Again it's a small release, but it seems like a really good movie with a great young cast.

Logan Lerman, Dylan McDermott, Kate Walsh, Nina Dobrev and Paul Rudd are also included in this all-star cast. I always wonder how films with such small budgets are able to get such awesome talent together. I guess they give up some on the production side to get better talent. And it seems like many actors are willing to take less money to be apart of an ensemble cast, especially if the screenplay is really good.

Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, and Ezra Miller are spotted on the set of The Perks of Being a Wallflower in Pittsburgh on Saturday (June 25). Hmmm, Ezra looks like he might be flirting a bit with Emma. What do you think?

Ezra is definitely a rising star in Hollywood. In April, he was interviewed by Kate Bosworth for a feature in Interview magazine. Kate asked Ezra about his dream role and he revealed:
"I always thought it would be really, really cool to play Edgar Allan Poe, because when I was a kid, he was one of the authors who really blew my mind open to all sorts of weird dark and twisted places. When I can grow a moustache, I want to play Edgar Allan Poe."
Edgar Allen Poe? That's not the answer you'd expect from an 18-year-old!

According to sources, producers want to move pretty fast on the film so look for it sometime in 2012.

Of course Nina also stars on the hit CW show The Vampire Diaries. She told MTV at the Movie Awards earlier this month that the show wouldn't exist without Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart:
"I'm very happy that [Twilight] exists because we exist because of them. Their success is our success. I'm kind of sad the movies are almost over ... Kellan [Lutz], Ashley [Greene] and the whole group—we all run in the same circles."
