Brittany Murphy is in negotiations to star in big screen adaptation of D.M. Thomas' novel "The White Hotel."
Despite her hectic film schedule, it appears that Brittany Murphy still spares a room for another challenging role for her to take. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the "Sin City" star is currently engaged in talks to topline a dramatic feature entitled "The White Hotel", a long-in-the-works adaptation of D.M. Thomas' acclaimed novel of the same title.
If a deal is reached, Murphy will likely be billed as an opera singer who becomes Sigmund Freud's famous case study Anna G upon seeking his services to reveal the mystery behind her hallucinatory dreams about a white hotel. With the man's help, she then unlocks the key to figure out her memories and her premonitions of the future, which include the Holocaust.
Eyeing a spring shoot in Vienna and Prague, the project has already had Simon Monjack to direct based on his own script with Ronald Rotholz producing via his Rotholz Pictures. Meanwhile, The Collective's Michael Green and Shaun Redick are both serving as executive producers.
