Today Acting-Auditions.org is reporting that Ruby Films and Benaroya Pictures are in pre-production on the indie feature film "Your Voice in My Head", and the casting directors have sent out casting calls for lead and supporting roles. Although shooting will take place in New York City, principal actor casting is taking place in talent-rich Los Angeles for the starring roles. Additional casting for general extras and featured background actors will take place in New York throughout production. "Your Voice in My Head" is an adaptation of the critically acclaimed Emma Forrest memoir, and tells the story of a young woman (Emma Watson) living the fast life in New York who attempts suicide before being saved by a selfless psychiatrist who is hiding the fact he is dying of cancer. Principal photography gets underway on November 4, 2013.
Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize winner Francesca Gregorini will direct "Your Voice in My Head" from an adapted screenplay written by Emma Forrest herself. Gregorini recently produced, wrote, and directed the 2013 feature film "The Truth About Emanuel" starring Jessica Biel. Academy Award nominee Alison Owen will produce for Ruby Films, where she is Founder and Managing Director. Also producing "Your Voice in My Head" is Independent Spirit Awards winner Michael Benaroya of Benaroya Pictures. International Film Trust (IFT), the recently-launched division of Benaroya Pictures, is selling the project internationally in Toronto. CAA is repping domestic rights.
