Emma Watson Rejoins Emma Forrest's Biopic 'Your Voice in My Head'


The 'Bling Ring' actress will work with director Francesca Gregorini to bring the inspiring story of the famed novelist to the big screen.


Emma Watson is back on the cast ensemble of a movie adaptation of Emma Forrest's memoir. She was previously attached to the project when it was set up at Warner Bros. with "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" director David Yates on the helm. She left last year after Yates' departure, and Emily Blunt was initially mentioned as her replacement.

Now the pic titled "Your Voice in My Head" is back on a fast track with Francesca Gregorini, the daughter of famed Bond girl Barbara Bach, as a new director. She previously co-directed Rooney Mara in coming-of-age drama "Tanner Hall". Alison Owen ("Jane Eyre") and Michael Benaroya ("Lawless (2012)", "Margin Call") serve as producers.

The movie will be based on Forrest's inspirational story of a young bipolar English woman living in New York and the heroic, selfless psychiatrist who saves her life while fighting for his own. The script, which landed a spot on the prestigious Black list, is written by the critically-acclaimed novelist herself. Production will begin in November this year in New York.

"We are incredibly excited to be working with Emma Forrest as she is one of the most sought after writers right now. Her story is intensely personal, with moments of humor just at the right time," producer Benaroya said in a statement, adding that "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" actress was "perfect for this role."

Stanley Tucci was previously reported to play the coveted male lead, but he is no longer attached to play the role.

Watson, 23, claimed her fame as a child actress portraying Hermione Granger in the "Harry Potter" movie franchise. She landed a role in Oscar-nominated "My Week with Marilyn", played a real-life teen thief in "The Bling Ring", and had a cameo in Seth Rogen's "This Is the End". She will next be seen opposite Russell Crowe in Darren Aronofsky's biblical epic "Noah".
