Thanks, gilly! That is a huge role and it sounds like they are really taking their time to cast it. Here is a bit of news about Emily Watson and Shantaram from Ropes of Silicon:

On top of Miss Potter we also learn that Watson will be starring alongside Johnny Depp for a second time after the voice work the two turned in for Corpse Bride in Shantaram, which is expected to begin filming next year.

I thought that was just a rumour the Imdb had picked up or made a mistake about and is repeated there :-? I guess we have ro wait and see for some official confirmation.

I don't know, GG. I have seen it twice now so who knows? Once a rumor is picked up it can certainly spread as fact. I can see her as Lettie though.

I thought it was interesting because it looks like Greg is being kept in the loop about casting..Although I've read bits where he says he hasn't had much to do with the film..

There was an interview where it sounded like Greg had pretty much handed everything over. Maybe that was just script?
