Warner Bros. Pictures is in negotiations to acquire Emma Forrest’s script “Your Voice in My Head” based on her memoir reports Deadline.
The project would be a reunion of “Harry Potter” director David Yates and actress Emma Watson. The former is presently in discussions with the latter about her playing the lead.
If she signs, Watson would play a young woman who attempts suicide before being saved by a New York-based psychiatrist who’s dying of cancer.
The studio is reportedly looking at big name stars for the male lead including Tom Hanks and George Clooney. Yates is expected to make this film before he begins work on “A Reliable Wife” at Sony Pictures.
