Emma Watson signed on to star in Your Voice in My Head, an adaptation to Emma Forest’s memoir of the same name. Italian-American Francesca Gregorini will direct the film.
The Harry Potter star was loosely attached to the project which would have reunited her with former Harry Potter director David Yates. Yates dropped out of the project last year followed by Watson. Poised to take the lead role was Emily Blunt, though her involvement was never officially confirmed.
The project was set up by Warner Bros., however it is now being produced independently by the International Film Trust who are internationally selling the project.
Your Voice in My Head follows the story of a young woman who seeks help from an optimistic psychiatrist after attempting to take her life while struggling with pursuing relationships and a career in writing.
Watson recently starred in Stephen Chobsky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower, appeared in Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring, and had a minor role in Seth Rogen’s comedy This is The End. Watson can next be seen in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah out March 28, 2014.
