The Hollywood Reporter (THR) released an article stating that Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) has joined the cast of Amma Asante's Belle. Belle is a romantic period drama. THR reprots:

LONDON – Penelope Wilton (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Sam Reid (Serena), Tom Felton (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and James Norton (Rush) are the latest names to join BAFTA award winner Amma Asante's sophomore movie effort, the period drama
Belle.

The BAFTA film award winner's romantic drama also stars Tom Wilkinson, Miranda Richardson and Matthew Goode and is set in 18th century England.

The project is billed as a tale of passion and romance and tells the tale of a mixed–race girl raised as an aristocratic lady in 18th century England.

It marks one of the first productions to be awarded production finance by Ben Roberts, the new director of the BFI Film Fund. It will shoot in the Isle of Man, London, Oxford, as well as Pinewood Studios, for seven weeks beginning Sept. 24.
Miranda Richardson (Rita Skeeter) is also in the film (thank you to LunaLuver for the tip).
